The Buddha Head: Patina Artwork from Papier-Mâché, Sustainable and Light!
Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism who later became known as “the Buddha”, lived during the 5th century B.C. The Buddha was born into a wealthy family as a prince in present-day Nepal. Although he had an easy life, Gautama was moved by suffering in the world.
He lived and taught in the region around the border of modern-day Nepal and India sometime between the 6th to 4th century B.C. The name Buddha means “one who is awakened” or “the enlightened one.”
He saw four sights: a man bent with old age, a person afflicted with sickness, a corpse, and a wandering ascetic. It was the fourth sight, that of a wandering ascetic, that filled Siddhartha with a sense of urgency to find out what lay at the root of human suffering. Siddhartha left the luxury of the palace.
