Buddha ‘prayer’ is the first of 3 Buddha’s in this 18” / 46cm size series.
The image came to me in meditation. I did the face in an hour after and had both men and women sit for me to achieve an androgynis body

This Limited edition of 25 bronzes is now sold out.
I’m still hoping to have an enlarge version for a public space perhaps in London one day.
An interesting news article:
Plans to bring peace and serenity to the people of London by installing a giant Buddha have won the backing of that renowned advocate of contemplative silence Bernie Ecclestone. The Formula One tycoon is supporting sculptor Laura Lian, who wants to put a 6ft statue in a convenient park or square. "I've got Laura Lian's Buddha in my office", says Ecclestone. "When I have all these other aggravations I look at it and it brings me peace. Put in the right place, it will be really nice and will give out the right message."
