"Everything passes everything changes everything crumbles all is impermanent."  A direct quotation from Master Artist Sax Berlin showing his belief in the impermanence and reincarnation of all things even the seemingly eternal Buddha.

A pensive oil on canvas from Sax. This study reflects 20 years of study & 20 years of creation and is part of Sax Berlins Great 108 Buddha Collection.

Sax Berlin is creating the Great 108 Buddhas series. The number 108 has sacred meaning for followers of the Buddhist faith. For example a Buddhist Mala (rosary) has 108 beads, there are 108 temptations to be avoided, in Japan a temple bell or gong will ring 108 times to welcome the new year.
