Weeping Buddha, One

2014 0 LOJONG COVER 3 copyI fell in love with Balinese Buddha when I first saw him.
The monks carve them as meditations.
Mine has been on my altar for 20 years, and has a beautiful patina from being held.
People call him Humble Buddha, but more often, Weeping Buddha.
I call him Buddha Ball.

2014 10 LOJONG  copyI like to create variations of the same object or image.
I am not sure why and I don’t want to question it,
but the subject came up as Mitchell asked me “why?” the other day.
