Metallic Religious Sculpture
I am really happy for following my heart regarding this beautiful and excellently craft piece of art! I am myself inspired by the Buddhist spirituality, but the real motivation hasn't to do with me. Several years ago my mother and I visited China. We were at the site of the Great Wall. She couldn't walk and explore it with me because of her age and stayed behind in a shop with our guide. When I came back she said to me: I would like a Buddha figurine. I ignored her request at that moment and later forgot about it. When she died, for a long time that memory had been nagging me but I was pushing it to the back of my consciousness. I received the Buddha sculpture on my birthday, two days before her passing away five year ago. That's why I requested to write on the little greeting card (in Spanish): Mima, deseo cumplido (Mima, wish fulfilled). Thank you, Gung Gus, and also Novica, for helping me fulfill her desire and lighten my pain!
