Buddha # 311 – zen and the art of archery

This is one of the first ideas I sketched out for this project, last year in fact.  Glad to finally get it done.  The background here…Sojun Mel Roshi told us on a visit about different ways the Buddha had been represented historically,  including as a handprint, a circle,  an empty throne.   I started thinking about other ways the Buddha could be represented…I think a bow and arrow would be good.  Forged mild steel, lock wire and recycled pallet wood.   About 3 feet high.
