The artwork in this calendar tells the story of the Buddha from his birth in India as Prince Siddhattha through his Enlightenment and attainment of Nirvana upon his death. The scenes reflect the legends, miracles, and local lore that have come to surround the Buddha over the past 2,500 years. The images are from The Life of the Buddha, two Burmese illustrated folding books in which chronologically consecutive events are often presented side-by-side within the same frames. Created around the turn of the nineteenth century, these manuscripts are in the collection of the British Library.
