Stavanger is the fourth biggest city in Norway. It is situated on the southwest coast. My aim is to try to capture something from every day, from the area nearby too, and when I am not at home I will still try to put up a photo from my archive. Welcome back for another look.
It is crazy, Buddha like a decoration.
Who knew that the Buddha and St. Francis had so much in common. :-)
I think it evokes peace for many.
I have seen this, too. It is odd. Many of the people who have a Buddha statue in the garden probably know very little about Buddha or Buddhism. Maybe the statue is associated with serenity and that is what appeals.
He's nice looking! :)
Very interesting. Is Buddha becoming more common because of renewed interest in the religious tradition or just because Buddha makes a nice garden figure?
I agree with Jack. I am not sure that Buddha would be happy to be used as a lawn gnome...
Today there are more and more people who search for peace- decorate in a Zen style, and also find what they are looking for in religions other than just Christianity.
