i read about the mohawk and the hawk and commend the welcoming of that positve view of the all loving BUDDHA! we all know what the statue represents, truth,love commpassion ALL THINGS THAT ARE TRUE AND LOVING, so if there was a walmart bag in the statues hand, I would imagine BUDDHA feeding a hungry person! IT’S ALL GOOD! it’s all that i want to know more about, and hope to learn.sent with warmth in my heart, victoia
