Details

Hand cast in bronze by Balinese artisan Eka Asita, this statuette represents the Flower Sermon, a story of the origin of Zen Buddhism. According to historical records, during one sermon Buddha said nothing, but merely held up a white lotus flower. No one in the audience understood the significance, except Buddha's disciple Mahakasyapa, who broke into a smile. Mahakasyapa's smile signifies the importance of wordless insight and the nature of tathata or "suchness"; both key principles of Zen Buddhism.

I love this little bird.. A great little piece from Eka Asita. She sits on a window sill waiting for the morning sun to make her shine. Thank you for your lovely creation.

"Charming bronze Buddha"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is so well crafted and charming from the pose of the piece, to the Verde green finish with Gold touches. It is a very endearing piece that is so nicely done. I like it so much that I have it on my desk so I can see it daily.

Thank you Eka for these fine Brother Owls (or sister owls). Such beautiful details. I bought them to share with a friend. I let her have first choice which one she wanted. Mine will be a gift for myself for Christmas. I will definitely watch for more listings from Eka.
