. . . there was Gautama Buddha.
Sela Sutta MN 92
Then the brahmin Sela approached the Blessed One, exchanged friendly greetings sat on a side, and examined the thirty two marks of a Great Man. He saw most of the marks of a Great Man, except two. Doubting whether the pudendum was encased and whether the tongue was large enough to cover the face, he was dissatisfied. Then it occurred to the Blessed One. The brahmin Sela sees most of the marks of a Great Man except two, he has doubts, as to whether the pudendum [penis] is encased and the tongue is large enough to cover the face. Then the Blessed One performed a psychic exercise so that the brahmin Sela could see the Blessed One’s pudendum encased and the large tongue. The Blessed One pulled out his tongue and with it, touched both ear lobes, nostrils and the whole forehead, and covered up the whole face with it.

Curious about such a large tongue, I googled [buddha tongue] but get only stock Buddha images or photos of a dog named Buddha. Has anyone ever seen an image of this massive Buddha tongue? Surely in 2000 years someone found this interesting enough to do a painting or a sculpture.
