The above portrait of St. Francis is my favorite. While I was searching for it, though, I'd found this one and it cracked me up. Apparently, St. Francis had a hard day and fell asleep while meditating on the meaning of mortality. [COLOR=red]- LINK[/COLOR]

I love that, very simple and elegant. And I must say the Goddess is particularly lovely to me. Thank you so much for sharing those images.:)

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

To start with, a figure of the Buddha in the posture of zazen; full lotus with his hands in the dhyana mudra. To either side, candles (enlightenment) and lotuses (transcendence; the white lotus is associated with enlightenment). In the fore, flowers and incense (impermanence; the incense also serves as a meditation timer).

The fold-out drawer holds my rakuzu; an abbreviated kesa; the robe of the Buddha.
