The Wheel of Reincarnation

The Wheel of Reincarnation

In this 8-meter (25-foot) tall Buddhist relief from the Dazu Rock Carvings in China, built sometime between the years 1177 and 1249, Mara, Lord of Death and Desire, clutches the Wheel of Reincarnation, which outlines the Buddhist cycle of reincarnation. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dazu_Wheel_of_Reincarnation.JPG
