Carved by hand of crocodile wood, this lovely image depicts Buddha sitting in meditation. His right hand is raised with the thumb and index finger touching, explaining his teachings, while the position of the left hand symbolizes meditation. Gung Gus paints the sculpture in warm colors, creating blossoms and butterflies on the master's flowing robes.
