Swedish Buddha

Sometime during the Migration Period, this Buddha made it as far as Sweden.
The bronze figure is 6th or 7th century and is from northern India, Kashmir, or Afghanistan. It was found on the Swedish island of Helgö, a trading and manufacturing center in Lake Mälar near Stockholm.

More speculation to add to the Norwegian stavkirke/Thai temple mystery, and the genetists’ question of migrations.
