Lord Budda in Paper Quilling

Quilling a Buddha image was on my mind for some time, but it was nothing like this. I wanted to quill "Laughing Buddha".But each time I started or thought of quilling it my inner self stopped me from doing it. May be because I am a Catholic and I respect  the religion I am in and I equally respect all religions, I did not think it was very respectful to quill Lord Buddha with a big stomach and a grin from yer to yer and something stops me from doing it. Mysteriously I happened to come across this image in the news paper as if it said quill me, and I started on it immediately. If you think it is nice, credit is not to my ability but something inside me that  guided to get it wright. Looking at the robes I really am amazed that it came out beautiful. Wanted to try the same method on the face, but was scared that I might spoil the features. Hope you would like it. Happy quilling till I think of something new. Take care :)

THE ENTIRE PICTURE IS CREATED ONLY WITH 1/8" STRIPS OF PAPER

Hi as always your work is fantastic. It's more amazing that being a catholic you were able to create a very good image of Lord Buddha. I am amazed by the face. You have created the calmness of lord Buddha's face very well.Everybody can't do that. The sitting position and how the arms and legs are kept, perfect! You have mentioned how you felt when you were creating this picture.It shows how devoted and respectful you are towards other religions.As a Buddhist I am really happy about your creation.Thanks for creating such a piece of art. Hope you would create more and more things for us to learn..
