I am still dreamy from our trip to Italy. As we passed through a small town in Italy, in the window of a studio were these buddhas. I thought they were sitting there so sweetly, meditating. To me Buddha symbolizes peace, compassion and wisdom. A good reminder. I wanted one of these simple little sculptures. We went into Brigitte's art studio. There were more of these lovely buddhas on the shelf. They made me smile. Even though they were very similar, I took each one in my hand and looked at them. Then I chose the one that would come back to New York with me.
This one is my Italian Buddha. How sweet is that blissful face. May we all have peace and love in our lives and wisdom to guide us.
