A curious compendium of Art, Photos, Opinions and Rants

There's something primal and Christ-like about this Buddha face. Jesus and Buddha are such brothers really. The parallels of their stories are remarkable. I think the most basic yet overarching similarity is an emphasis on compassion and love. While taking this picture a lady came up to me and told me to stop. When I asked her why she didn't have an answer and sort of stumbled something out along the lines of, "It belongs to the artist!" I smiled, shook my head and took this picture. The Buddha belongs to no one.
