You can use the URL's in venerable Appicchato's original post... these correspond to the pictures you can't see.

I suspect the problem is that some sites don't like forums linking to their posts (because it's a drain on their bandwidth) so lock down their pictures so that they can't be automatically called upon by message boards.

Metta,

Those are amazing.

I particularly like the second one -- behind the rupa, is that a mural painted on a wall, or perhaps a tapestry?

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful statues.

I wonder what the Buddha would think of them.

Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light

He would think "I thought I told you not to idolize me, but my teachings instead. Therefore create statues of Dhamma wheels."

At least that's my view. ;P
