This artwork of the Buddha in stained glass is currently for sale. It is one of my favorite artworks, and I hang it often in my living room window even though I am not a Buddhist.
This artwork is constructed with both lead came and copper foil... not an easy undertaking. The Buddha is constructed in copper foil, which I think is the proper choice for almost all representational designs. The visual mantra background is constructed in lead came, which I think is the proper choice for all geometric designs in stained glass. All metallic parts (lead came, and solder-covered-copper-foil) have been darkened to a charcoal gray with a chemical patina.
The bindi (small dot on the forehead) is a red cast glass jewel that has been permanently glued to the Buddha's forehead.
The colors look more accurate on the left side of the photo with the exception of the outer green, which looks better at 2-o'clock.
This artwork is framed in an oak frame, which looks black in this photo but actually has a clearly visible wood grain with a medium stain.
The size, including the frame, is just over 35".
