i went to the jade buddha exhibition at the museum the other day. there were lots of people clustering in front of the buddha, making offerings of glowing plastic lotus flowers, and little fibre optic ornaments. i am a big fan of gaudy and tacky, but it was all a bit much for me. this screen however took my interest. it was hard to choose the photo i liked best, but i chose this one for the tiny halo of the buddha on the other side of the screen (right down the bottom).
jade buddha is on for another 2 weeks. http://www.museum.wa.gov.au/oursites/perth/whatson.asp
