It is natural for people to depict deities that resemble themselves. In 
the far east, buddha is depicted as a short bald potbellied grinning 
cheerful chinese looking chap but Siddharta (his real name) is actually 
a melancholy tall skinny full haired (curly) indian fella who had always 
insisted he was a mere mortal.

Ah, the lengths we go to deceive ourselves.

And that inverted Bowl we call The Sky,
Whereunder crawling coop't we live and die,
Lift not thy hands to *It* for help---for It
Rolls impotently on as Thou or I.
