Paper Amulet with Buddhas

paper buddha 1

Last weekend I decided on the spur of the moment to visit some galleries in Chelsea (more on that another time).  I also stopped at one of my favorite places, the Rubin Museum.  I drew some Buddha faces, something I always like to do when I visit.

When I came home I compared them with some other drawings I had done at the Rubin.  Buddhas, yes, but also an interesting sketch labeled “paper amulet”.  I decided to make one, based on my not-very-descriptive notes.  Yes, I had origami paper, and of course plenty of embroidery floss.

Later I tried to find paper amulets on the internet, without too much success.  Nothing that matched my sketch anyway.
