Thai Painting of Purple Sukhothai Buddha with Butterflies, "Buddha Image in Purple"$1,829.99
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.
Hands in the Sky Signed Surrealist Painting from Thailand, "Blessed Sky"$399.99
Descending from the clouds, two otherworldly hands grace a purple and pink sky. Thailand's Rawat Vongla paints this surrealist composition for a dreamlike addition to any home. Says the artist, "Our life has happiness and sadness. They come and go, but God stays with us all the time. We can feel that God spreads blessings from the sky to our lives."
Color Collectible Giclee Print on Canvas from India, "Tree of Life II"$279.99
A dragonfly alights on the trunk of a majestic banyan tree. Its wide canopy and strong roots make the tree a symbol of the earth, representing stability and immortality. From the series Elemental Spaces by Anjali Sapra, this beautiful reproduction conveys warmth and energy. "a visual rendering of natural elements combined with metaphors and symbols from mythology and religion," she explains. Sadhana Jaipuria presents the work as a giclée archival print on canvas as a part of her gallery's collection.
From an early age, Anjali Sapra showed a keen interest in the visual arts. This led her to study India's traditional art forms such as the intricacies of Mughal miniatures and the colors schemes of Worli paintings. The artist has exhibited her work in prestigious India galleries and also in London.
Traditional Indian Elephant Theme Purple Miniature Painting, "Purple Majestic Elephant"$29.99
Lifting its trunk to trumpet, a proud Indian elephant strides from right to left across a purple landscape. Brass bells and silk brocade proclaim its royal status in the king's household, and gold adorns the tusks. From Madhur Khandelwal, this beautiful miniature painting celebrates India's medieval Mughal period. "Miniature" refers to the incredible details rather than to the size of this work of art.
