Default The Sign (on the chest)

Donated moolah for a brochure and lucky there's just a short explanation of the sign on Buddha's chest.
It's represents that the Buddha possesses all virtues !
The curls in between the eyebrows, signifying preaching the truth to all beings.
The usnisa pearl and conch hair on the head represents full wisdom of Buddha.

Hi Danny,

With all the info you already gave I know now a lot more about this big big guy. And I guess there is a lot more signs on this statue that only buddhism specialists can see...

Thanks pal ! :)
