Boolean Buddhas is a series of sculptures created by David Hirmes using Blender's improved boolean functions.

Using the 3D scan by Pieter Bos he made multiple copies of the Buddha model with different shapes. The boolean operations allows him to add, subtract, or intersect one object with another.

The model is printed on a Makerbot 3D printer with ABS plastic. For this example he made a simple finish by taping the outside surface and painting inside with contrasting gold color.

And this nice box is painted in gold color and the translucent ABS makes it extra beautiful.

Hirmes sells these models online on his shop pricing from $40 to $180, but he also made the 3D files for these models available on Thingiverse under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial license to allow you to download, modify and fabricate using your own 3D printer.
