Buddha at the Art Institute of Chicago

The Art Institute wasn’t on my original Chicago itinerary, but everyone I spoke to while I was in the city, locals and travellers alike, insisted that it was terrific and I had to go. This Buddha, from the Asian Art Gallery, literally stopped me in my tracks. It’s a 12th century sculpture from South India and even in a gallery setting, it exudes serenity and calm.
