In the carvings of Buddha’s head especially, one will notice the elongated earlobes. The wealthy men of that time-weighted their ears with precious metals and stones, but the Buddha consciously renounced his material connections for a life of spiritual enlightenment. His earlobes stayed permanently elongated but were void of riches. Traditionally keeping a statue of the head alone symbolizes the Buddha’s wealth of knowledge. These can serve as a reminder to always challenge oneself to continue learning.
