Account of an Image

The statues in the temples of Bhutan, which represent the bodily form of the Buddha often have stories of their origin, the artist who created it, the person who commissioned it and the provenance. These information and the stories of the statue's miraculous powers to fly or speak or heal often underscore the spiritual significance and holiness of the statue.
