Buddhalaiti is a little play of phonetic spelling...for Buddha Lady.
Formed from several hundred laser cut 'bean' shapes bolted in a random pattern to form this Buddha-like sitting figure. The head dress transitioned out of a more traditional head form, (see studio detail) and created an interesting gender change from male to female.
The oxidized finish is now a darker brown, and will be oiled in the coming weeks. The bolts are stainless.
Buddhalaiti II is featured separately on this site, made in stainless steel, and is formed as a near twin.
