By far the best buddha head on thingiverse but i was disappointed, when i saw that the hairline and the head itself are turned/twisted to the left. Look in the "Made"-Category, you'll see what i mean.

"The great perfection that many on the spiritual path seek and ultimately fall short of finding is that perfection is the imperfection of all things."

Made 3 of them in different scales. 0.5, 1 and 1.5 . Printed in white ABS with my SD3. Came out great.

My mom loves these! Printed one for her ;)
