    Got this on eBay as a "collected long time antique" and no other discription. Siddhartha Buddha tried to find enlightenment through deprivation of worldly goods, including food and practising self-mortification. After nearly starving himself to death by restricting his food intake to around a leaf or nut per day, he collapsed in a river while bathing and almost drowned. At that point Siddhartha Buddha began to reconsider his path to enlightenment. A runway models starving Buddha statue.
