Just a wonderful piece. My wife loves it. Dharmashops jewelry is like nothing else out there. Each piece is unique. Apparently the diety on this pendant is a hindu goddess Leela, not a burmese buddha. I tried looking up more info on this diety but cannot find any. I don't think you will be ever disappointed with anything you get from dharmashop.
I purchased a one of a kind necklace made by the same artist who made this piece. It has a similar Buddha pendant along with small rings and beads on a leather cord. It is the most amazing necklace I have ever owned. It is simple, beautiful, meaningful and made with great attention to quality and detail.I can't begin to tell you how much this piece means to me. If you are debating buying another of her one of a kind pieces, do it. You won't regret your decision.(and the folks at the Dharmashop offer outstanding service and I was amazed at the speedy shipping!)
