Buddha Bracelet

In Buddhism, prayer beads are used as an aid to meditation. The practitioner turns a string of beads in their hand as they repeat a mantra, as a way of counting their repetitions while still being able to focus on the mantra.

Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei created this piece, Buddha Bracelet, as part of Building Asia Brick by Brick, an exhibition of LEGO art and architecture that traveled through China and surrounding locations in 2007 and 2008.
