Depicted in a carving by Gung Gus, Buddha sits in meditation, his golden body clothed in a hand-painted robe. His gesture is significant. The nerve channel associated with the mind of enlightenment passes through the thumbs. Thus, joining of the two thumbs in this gesture is of auspicious significance for the future development of the mind of enlightenment.
Gung Gus has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $350 and the most recent for $1250. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood and paints for the production of his new designs.
