This is what I'd imagine Buddha to be if he were a drag queen.
Beautiful isn't she. She has Buddha's ethereal quality, and a drag queen's penchant for glitter!

On a side note, did you know that the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, Guan Yin/Quan Yin, is technically a transexual?!

....was originally depicted as Buddha when he was still a prince, and therefore wears chest-revealing clothing and may even sport a moustache. However, in China, Guanyin is usually depicted as a woman. Additionally, some people believe that Guanyin is both man and woman (or perhaps neither).

Ok maybe not, but she/he sure sounds like she could be my patron goddess of drag. I have a new ambition! I want to grow up to be like Guan Yin!

Strangely, Quan Yin is very similar to the Virgin Mary in Catholic depictions, or the Madonna and child. Twilight zone!
Oh My Goddess!
