Buddhist Teachings Hold Wax Sacred

While reading 'Encaustic Art' by Lissa Rankin today, I came across this passage that I thought was really neat:

'(Michael) David was delighted to discover that, in Buddhist teachings, wax is a sacred material, "a metaphor for compassion, fragility, and change."'

No wonder I am so drawn to encaustic wax painting right now.....
