I need help! This is the most amazing wood carving I have ever seen. I acquired it today at an estate sale, it is very aged, but I have no idea about it's true story. Can anyone help me? Thank you in advance; Greg

    Hi Greg. It is an amazing piece of sculpture. It looks Chinese to me. But I'm reminded of two religious practises of the East. In India there is a religion called Jainism. They have a practise called Santhara or ritual starvation.

    Allied to it I suppose is a similar practise in Buddhism called Sokushinbutsu:

    I am personally moved by this Buddha image of yours. Thanks for sharing it with us and I hope that others may fill in more of the details.

    You should put it out on your porch on Halloween! That would scare the little rugrats! It's pretty awesome!
