Bouddha Maitreya.

Darjeeling - West Bengal.

Un bouddha « du futur » trône à l’intérieur du Yiga Chöling (voir image précédente). Il mesure 5 mètres de hauteur. Sur l’autel, tout autour de lui, les statuettes représentent des Lamas célèbres, des bodhisattvas… Son visage est entouré d’une sorte de col très rococo avec des statuettes naives et des feuilles en plastique de toutes les couleurs.
Entre ses doigts , et empilées en tas devant lui des rubans de soie offerts par les fidèles.
C’est un autel typique des temples bouddhistes dans l’Himalaya.

The Buddha of the future (« Maitreya ») sits inside the Yiga Chöling (see previous image). It is 5 meters high. On the altar, all around him, the statuettes depict famous Lamas, bodhisattvas… His face is surrounded by a kind of very rococo collar with naive statuettes and plastic sheets of all colors.
Between his fingers , and stacked in heaps in front of him silk ribbons offered by the faithfuls.
This is a typical altar of buddhist temples all over Himalayas.
