Buddha Statues’ Iconography – by David Lai
David Lai who is one of my younger students, has a huge interest in Buddhist Iconography. He is an avid collector of statues, thangkas, tsatsas, paintings, and any type of Buddhist art. His room is filled with beautiful items arranged quite tastefully I must say. His 4 ft Manjushri statue graces Kechara Media & Publications Office where he works.
He will buy whatever he can afford, and what he can’t, he will do part payment. Or maybe get his dad to sponsor some statues if he can…his dad does sponsor and many times generously.
David is a liaison, works in Kechara Media & Publications and also in the Education dept of Kechara. Yes, he is a busy young man.
Here’s a video of him giving a talk on iconography. I thought it would be interesting and educational for everyone to view. David is explains very well here. It’s a must watch as he explains what he’s passionate about.
