A florid cloak covers Buddha as he meditates with inspiring spirituality. Perfectly detailed, his sculpted image is the creation of Gung Gus, who combines his passions for carving and painting. Gus carves the great Buddha by hand from noble crocodile wood and brings him to life with a palette of acrylic paints.
Gung Gus has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $350 and the most recent for $1250. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood and paints for the production of his new designs.
