Buddha ranks among the most often depicted holy figures of the world, perhaps appearing more than Christ. Venerated in all the nations of Asia and even beyond, his image took form along the Silk Road, the birthplace of many schools of Buddhism. Indeed, the Buddhist religion recognizes many Buddhas representing various traditions: such as Buddhism of the Ancient Teaching, of the Great Vehicle and Tantric Buddhism.
