'Footprint on Stone'
Rich crimson reveals a tenuous outline beneath delicate lotus buds. Parinya Nanjai depicts the or "footprint of the Buddha." Beautifully stylized with intricately patterned symmetry, this schematized design shows all the toes to be of equal length. When Buddha stepped back onto earth after reaching enlightenment, his feet made an imprint where he stepped, the first and most honored of these imprints being the supposed imprint atop Adam's Peak in Ceylon. These footprints are venerated in all Buddhist countries.

Black and White Surrealist Horse Painting (2019), "Moving Horse"$1,269.99
Masterfully combining surrealist and expressionist styles, Thai artist Sakchai paints a composition that is filled with energy. Against a textured backdrop, the image of a horse is depicted in black and white. Certain elements of the horse are depicted with hyper-realistic detail, as if we are viewing through the horse's skin to see its muscles and sinews. As the horse moves, a second version of itself emerges, suggesting the animal's strength and power. Sakchai uses pastels to create a textured surface over the canvas before capturing his subject with black acrylics.
