Buddha


I love making masks. When I was in Kyrgyzstan, I learned about the female Buddha from one of the women I spent time with discussing her country. Kyrgyzstan is now a Muslin country but there was time when Buddhism was practiced. Anyway, I wanted to try my hand at making a female Buddha. It allowed me to do hand applique which I love and a little bead embellishing which I also love. She hangs in my studio reminding me of my time in Kyrgyzstan. My friend Carolyn even made me address labels with her image and she always gets a nice compliment. Enjoy! Karen
