Buddha Gallery

In March, Christie’s sold a sculpture of Dainichi Nyorai, the “Supreme Buddha” or “Great Sun Buddha,” for about $14.4 million, setting a world auction record for traditional Japanese art. The wooden piece is about 26 inches tall and dates to the 12th century. The interior of the body holds a wood placard with a pagoda-shaped finial, a crystal ball on a bronze lotus stand and a crystal pagoda.<br>
