The Buddhist

    Mixed Media/Fiber       48″ W x 60″ L

I was going to title this piece “A Buddhist in a Hindu Country”, and I decided it was not a particularly good title although it is descriptive. It was rare to see the classic orange or deep yellow robes of the Buddhist monk in India. Buddhists are less than 2% of the population. But we visited an ancient Buddhist monastery site that was mostly in ruins. There were 3 Buddhist Monks sitting on the ground studying. This monk had the most interesting expression. I decided to create a more fanciful background for him than the somewhat desolate piles of stone that were from another era. It is fun for me to create this kind of fantasy background. It does reflect the feeling of trees and ancient buildings that is often part of the India landscape.     $2.400
