Acrylic on Canvas Painting of Hellenistic Buddha, "Buddha Vision"
Artist Rawat Vongla of Thailand works in acrylic on canvas to create this original composition, which features the Greco-Buddhist representation of Buddha. The Hellenistic influence on images of Buddha can be seen in the idealistic realism of the figures, the draped clothing so typical of Greek statues, and the curled hair which is representative of the Mediterranean. Vongla uses a muted palette of purple, rose, blue and green to create a dream-like feeling.
Original Impressionist Gandhara Buddha Painting, "Intelligence"
This intriguing and atmospheric acrylic on canvas painting is by Thai artist Rawat Vongla. The artist recreates an ancient Greco-Buddhist statue in hazy shades of rose, green and brown. The statue was one of the first representations of Buddha (1st - 2nd century AD), and was excavated at Gandhara, Pakistan. Such early Hellenistic interpretations, such as the figure's draped, toga-like garment, point to the Greek influence on depictions of the Buddha from that point onward.
Expressionist Acrylic Painting of Buddhist Lotus Blossom, "Enlightenment"
A vivid color palette and use of pointillist techniques make this painting from Rawat Vongla in Thailand a standout. The artist works in acrylic on canvas to depict a lotus flower standing tall above the water. In Buddhism, the four stages of the lotus blossom represent four types of people and their distance from enlightenment. The lotus rising up above the water will readily bloom and achieve enlightenment; while the budding blossom at the water's surface needs further knowledge and understanding to do so. The under-water lotus will eventually attain enlightenment, after extensive time and training; but the mud-buried lotus, representing a dull mind, laziness and selfishness, may never achieve enlightenment at all.
Thai Original Signed Portrait of Buddha, "The Buddhism ll"
Buddha is a favorite theme for Thotsapon. He depicts the master as though hewn from stone. Emanating a green aura, the aged image radiates peace and calm.
Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist nation, filled with breathtaking ancient temples, pagodas and other architectural wonders constructed to worship Buddha. In Thailand images of Buddha play an important role beyond mere decoration. They are traditionally placed within the home in special locations, such as shrines or pedestals, to help facilitate everyday religious worship.
