Description

by Arneson through Professor Rev. Dr. James Kenneth Powell II, opensourcebuddhism.org. This project presents the earliest and "imageless" art of Buddhism, following the dictates of Siddhartha the Buddha, that his followers refrain from making images of his person. Instead, abstract images were used - the bodhi tree, the wheel of teaching etc. until the Greek Buddhists in the wake of Alexander's conquests change literally, the face of Buddhism forever with the first Buddha images.
