AJ's Buddhas - [ New Picture Added!! ]

Postby Still Searching » Mon Dec 24, 2012 11:22 pm

I have many Buddha statues/ornaments, I will take some pictures and share them with you all after Christmas, possibly the 26th or the 27th so keep looking back at this thread for updates.

Here is 2 of them so far.
It's a candle holder with Buddha meditating next to a lotus flower

This one is made out of wood (dunno what kind)

I will upload more soon after Christmas.
I'm really sorry the pictures are so small and not good quality, I'll try and make them larger & look better when I get more time.

Enjoy!
