Buddha #74 – tobbe male style “begging buddha”

Ever since I saw Tobbe Malm’s genius bolt sculptures I wanted to do a Buddha in that style,  but couldn’t figure out how to convey zazen with a bolt.  I did have a vision of a begging bolt, and guatama buddha was known to live on alms and carry a “begging bowl,” so I went with that.  Besides,  why couldn’t a beggar be a buddha?  This was fun and I might revisit during the year.   See my inspiration here: http://www.boredpanda.com/blacksmith-steel-sculpture-bolt-poetry-tobbe-malm/?fb_action_ids=10153197335681180&fb_action_types=og.shares&fb_source=other_multiline&action_object_map=%5B717350605050860%5D&action_type_map=%5B%22og.shares%22%5D&action_ref_map=%5B%5D
