Disciple of the Buddha II - 2 by 

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.

Comments and feed-back always welcome. Thanks for looking :)

    Nice angle, cool focus, if you know how to clone out the bit under his elbow then that would be my suggestion and also to try a B&W version as it will bring out his features and detail in his clothes.

  • Yes, you´re right, I could easily clone that corner away… I´ll work on that as soon as I see a chance. Ad I will try out the b-w version too, thank you a lot for those hints, they are very helpful!
