3D Printable Buddha
Posted By sculpteo on Sep 16, 2011 |In Buddhism, the term buddha usually refers to one who has become enlightened (i.e., awakened to the truth, or Dharma).
Buddhas are frequently represented in the form of statues and paintings. Commonly seen designs include: the Seated Buddha, Reclining Buddha, Standing Buddha, Hotei or Budai, the obese Laughing Buddha, usually seen in China (This figure is believed to be a representation of a medieval Chinese monk who is associated with Maitreya, the future Buddha, and is therefore technically not a Buddha image.), the Emaciated Buddha, which shows Siddhartha Gautama during his extreme ascetic practice of starvation.
