A Japanese Buddha in Paris

For this week's Postcard Friendship Friday, here are some Buddhist images from an exhibition in Paris.
Check out the original PFF site at Vintage Postcards Cpaphil for more beautiful cards.
Happy PFF all!

A few years ago, I happened to catch a fabulous exhibition of Buddhist art in Paris. This image of a Japanese Maitreya Buddha from Japan was among the beautiful sculptures that had been brought to Paris for the exhibition. It is carved in wood and dates back to the tenth century.
