The Life of the Buddha 2019 Wall CalendarPOMEGRANATE
The artwork in this calendar tells the story of the Buddha from his birth in India as Prince Siddhattha through his enlightenment and attainment of nirvana upon his death. The scenes reflect the legends, miracles and local lore that have come to surround the Buddha over the past 2,500 years. The images are from The Life of the Buddha, a set of two Burmese illustrated folding books in which chronologically consecutive events are often presented side by side within the same frames. Created around the turn of the 19th century, these manuscripts are in the collection of the British Library.
