1. this vajra mudra for knowledge and wisdom is more or less known in japenese and korean buddhism [haven´t seen this mudra in india, or thailand or birma…]. and as far as i researched, this buddha is from the silla kingdom period 57 bc – 935 ac., so very old. very impressing, thank you 🙂

    1. Very cool! Thank you for doing a little research on this! That would fit with the gallery – I recall the time frame of the Buddha’s being from about 1000 – 1400 AD. Thanks again!


    1. Me too! That’s exactly the reason why I started photographing in this gallery – the light was fantastic. I’m sure it is to protect the statues, but they have this perforated metal screen over the windows and it created beautiful patterns of light.
