The Buddha Eyes, also known as Buddha's Third Eyes or Wisdom Eyes symbolizes the omnipresence or all-seeing of a Buddha. In Nepal, Buddha Eyes can be found on virtually every stupa; so prevalent that they are considered the symbol of Nepal itself. This is quite remarkable considering that the majority of Nepalis are Hindus. With each pair of eyes, there is also a curly symbol between the eyes that looks very much like a question mark - this is the Nepali character for number 1 and symbolizes the unity of all the things and the one way to reach enlightenment�through the Buddha's teachings.

“I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.” – Ken Burns
