The Australian has a blast here about Ros Packer (wife of the late Kerry Packer) providing the ponies for the acquisition by the National Gallery of a magnificent 2nd CE Seated Buddha.

She was drawn to the piece due to its:

“drawn to the sculpture’s powerful stance and confident yet calm gaze”

Go have a look, it should be worth a least half a schooners time. Dont forget to see buddha’s foot print too, thats kinda groovy in my book.
