NIGHT 118 – THE STORY OF ‘AZIZ AND ‘AZIZA

Buddha’s left footprint Buddhapāda (as indicated by big toe on the right) – one of the oldest objects of veneration and worship associated with the Buddha – decorated with 108 auspicious symbols including royal insignia, mythical creatures, rivers, mountains and continents. There is a conch shell in each toe. Talismanic inspiration from 19th century Burma
