Consecration: The prepared altar inside the Temple, 1987

Description

Candles, incense, and figurines placed before the altar. You will also notice five pink lotus blossoms placed before the principal statue. These five closed blossoms arranged in a single line are meant to symbolize a perpetual homage to the Buddha, an offering of lotus blossoms that do not wither. They represent the five lives of the Buddha mentioned in reference to the six-tiered umbrella.
