After the apple follows the pear. One person was enthusiastic in growing apples with the ‘Apple’ logo on them producing Apple-d apples while another is completely recreating the shape of a pear. That’s called some idea. So this time we see pears shaped into mini Buddhas which have been carefully grown in moulds, an outcome of labour of six years to attain the very perfection.
The credit for these Buddha pears goes to Gao Xianzhang, a Chinese farmer, who is said to have produced not in hundreds but 10,000 such forms which he plans to make available in Europe.
