Here is the Seated Buddha, sculpted from stucco with traces of polychrome. Obviously, the Buddha himself was a living embodiment of a good life. He achieved the crucial Good Life theme of enlightenment, and because of this, his teachings have been passed on for generations. In the sculpture, Buddha's tranquil facial expression and overall relaxed demeanor convey his true mastery of a good life. The Seated Buddha reminds me to remain calm even when I face difficult obstacles, as this will help me to endure and allow me to reach my full potential.
