I carve the original of each medal in clay. Cast by hand in lead-free pewter. Can be pendants or used on a key chain. Each comes in a pouch with a history card stating the following:

Buddha (ca. 563-483 B.C.) was born a prince in what is now Nepal. After denouncing the luxuries of his life, he entered a period of extreme ascetic austerities before finally seating himself beneath a Bodhi tree and determining not to arise until he was enlightened. After 49 days, he arose and danced about the tree. The core of Buddhism is meditative practice. It is difficult to summarize, but the goal of such practice is to break free of perceptions based in the self so that one can see reality as it is: the very vision that made Buddha dance. This small medal of Buddha in the lotus position, his name in Japanese on the back, was handcarved by Hank Schlau and cast in pewter.

Dimensions: 1 inch high
