Buddha appears among golden vines in this inspiring painting by Thailand's Thotsapon. He finds inspiration in a most highly venerated image of Buddha known as Phra Phuttha Sihing (Buddha Sihing), said to have been commissioned by a king in Sri Lanka sometime during the second century of the present era. It was then taken to Sukhothai, from where King Borommaracha I (1370-1388) took Buddha Sihing to Ayuthaya, and after that Phraya Yandis took it to Kampheng Phet. A Chiang Rai king sent an army to retrieve it and when he passed away King Saen Muang Ma took it to Chiang Mai, where it has been ever since. Thotsapon paints with acrylics and uses gold foil for a spectacular effect.
