As described, this pendant the artist has indeed created a peaceful, beautiful expression on the face of this Buddha pendant. I received an antiqued (not tarnished) version of this pendant. With a little effort I soon replicated the gleaming full-copper version pictured here. In turn, I would recommend this pendant both to those who like an antiqued look and those who prefer natural copper. It is well-made and the silver bail and backing contrast nicely with the copper face and chain.
