Thai Painting of Purple Sukhothai Buddha with Butterflies, "Buddha Image in Purple"$1,787.99
Butterflies flutter around the serene image of Buddha in purple hues - the color of spirituality and mysticism. Tanachai Ekuruchaitep works with acrylics to honor the great spiritual teacher through his art. The Thai artist is inspired by the portrayal of Buddha during the Sukhothai period (1238 to 1583), which was influenced by Sri Lankan monks. The Buddha images of this era featured such distinguishing characteristics as a flame over the head which itself was covered with finely curled hair. The oval face has high curving eyebrows, a hooked nose, a downward gaze, and a gentle smiling expression.
Expressionist Acrylic Painting of Buddhist Lotus Blossom, "Enlightenment"$369.99
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.
