back of the book.

The Bodhi tree. The first Buddha not shown in human form. Only aniconic references to his presence are made by objects important in his life. Bodhi means revalation. Lotus also can be found as art symbol in Egypt -> see Lotus columns.

Greek influence art of Buddha. Greco-Roman sculpture. 71/2 ft. regular fold patterns in the drape of his monks robe. Similar to Kouroi -> see Greek's "Cleobis and Biton". There are 32 Characteristics of Buddha.

1. earlobes are streched into long loops symbolizing heavy jewelry when he left the palace.
2. His head swels with unisha, a cranial knob indicates his great wisdom and divine energy.
3. a tuft of hair between his eyes, the urna or third eye, by which he sees the meaning of life.
4. His hair formed in "snail curls" that resemble the tight patterns in Persian hair and beards.



On top it says, Great Bodhisattva, from Cave 1, Ajanta, India, c.600-650 CE. Wall painting.

Mesopotamia art, brows connected like wings.

I know for the fact that religion is very touchy to everyone and you believe what you want to believe, but these are evidences which are hard to find, or you can't find on the internet... This was my assigned book by my professor from my college art class so, I can assure it's a good source... I put this up because I think these are very important information that I want to share to everyone...
