The future Buddha Maitreya occupies an uncertain place in the Buddhist cosmology: Is he a Buddha, or a bodhisattva? Regardless, Maitreya became an object of veneration early on in Buddhist history and remains a popular figure today, nearly two millennia after this statue was created. Standing Bodhisattva Maitreya is part of the collection of the Lahore Museum in Pakistan.
