Shakyamuni, The Original Buddha Sculpted in Schist Stone. Originally from a cave.
Sui Dynasty ‘589-618’ AD
Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha or simply the Buddha. He was an ascetic and a sage, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. He is believed to have lived and taught mostly in the eastern part of ancient India sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE.
Gautama is the primary figure in Buddhism. He is believed by Buddhists to be an enlightened teacher who attained full Buddhahood – the condition of awakened one – and shared his insights to help sentient beings end rebirth and suffering.
