It is generally believed that Buddhism was known to the Chinese as early as the 1st or the 2nd century BC and foreign monks settled into China to teach and translate the scripts by the second century AD. Siddhartha Gautama or Buddha Shakyamuni, as he is most widely known, lived around 400BC in present-day Nepal. Since Buddhism was taken up by the Nepalese, the Indians and later on by the Chinese and Japanese, representations of the figure vary to a great extend. Impressions such as the one shown here, with strong bodies and thin clothing generally derive from the Indian representation, but have become a global symbol.
