The Buddha’s two disciples – series
Sariputra (wikipedia) and Moggallana (wikipedia ) were the two closest disciples of the Buddha. The one known for his gentleness and spirituality, the other for his “supernatural gifts” (divine eye) and wisdom.
I saw these statues on a visit in a private persons home… They have a central place in the living room, and they drew my attention as soon as I entered, for their remarkable beauty. I was very happy that I received the permission to come back with my camera and photograph them.
