Painstakingly carved from a single root of aromatic cedar by a skilled artisan, this sculpture is a unique work of art to be collected. Through the creative hands of the artist, the life-like figure of the Buddhist Monk, Damo, emerges from the organic body of the cedar root. Damo, or the Bodhidharma, is traditionally credited as the transmitter of Zen Buddhism to China and regarded as its first Chinese patriarch. According to Chinese legend, Damo also introduced the physical training of Buddhist monks, which many believe led to the creation of Kung-fu. His accomplishments have elevated his image to the level of legend. This statue comes with a matching wooden stand and is a one-of-a-kind treasure to be collected.
