Buddhalaiti II 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 of Buddhalaiti I) and created an interesting gender change from male to female.
This is the second variation formed fully in stainless steel, with a bright swirl sanded finish. I will be adding more images in the coming weeks, with a revised base design.
60"h x 42"w 32"d (with out base)
