The Smile of the Buddha

October 29, 2014 - 7:00pm

Born around 563 B.C.E., the Buddha has become recognizable to Western Culture, primarily through his portrayal in sculpture.  It is through this imagery that many associate the ideas of meditation, serenity, and bliss associated with his teachings. This program will follow the artistic representation of the Buddha from early aniconic imagery to the development of the Buddha in human form.
