A black lacquer box has a black-and-white photograph of a massive stone Buddha's hand touching the earth on its lid. Inside are 12 matching cards with envelopes. This image commemorates the Buddha's response to the devil Mara's challenge to his right to enlightenment, whereupon the Buddha touched the earth with the tip of the middle finger of his right hand. In doing so he called upon Mother Earth herself to bear witness to his long evolutionary struggle, over billions of lifetimes, to come to this moment.
