Buddhism teaches impermanence, the notion that there is a beginning and end to all things. Buddhist statues will someday fade just as disposable cups do. However, Buddhist statues and disposable goods are considered separate. That is why I would like to
use the caving techniques for Buddhist statues on my work to indicate my questioning of existing values.
