Recently, I purchased a beautiful hammered copper picture that depicts the life of the Buddha on the border:
I am a bit uncertain about some of these scenes/episodes, however, and need your help to identify them. I numbered the scenes for easier reference:
Here the ones that I recognize:
1) Queen Maya's white elephant dream
2) Prince Siddhattha's birth
3) Siddhattha proves his prowess with the bow in order to win Yasodhara (?)
4) Yasodhara's and Siddhattha's wedding
5) The prince and Channa observe the four sights
6) Siddhattha leaves the palace amidst the dancers
7) Siddhattha cuts his hair
8) ??? Is this the shepherd boy who saved the Bodhisatta's life by giving him goat's milk? Or is this Sujata offering the rice porridge?
9) The Bodhisatta meditates (under the Bodhi tree?)
11) The Buddha beats Mara and his army
12) Brahma Sahampati convinces the Buddha to teach (?)
13) The Buddha sets the Wheel of Dhamma in motion
15) The Buddha enters into Parinibbana
16) The Buddha's stupa
I'm mostly unclear about 8, 10, and 14, and a bit unsure about 3 and 12. Maybe some of you have better recognition of these episodes?
In any case, I'm grateful for any help. Thank you in advance!
