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.
Thai Spiritual Buddhism Painting (2004), "Buddha of the Sukhothai Period"$2,659.99
Buddha´s head appears in profile in this sublime study by Tanachai Ekuruchaitep. Lichen adds texture and realism to the sculpted stone image, reflecting the ancient atmosphere of Khmer temples. The artist is inspired by the Buddha images whose style originated in Ceylon. Buddha's serenity is intensified by the dark background.
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.
Original Acrylic on Canvas Buddha Painting, "Godliness"
Sitting in a position of blessing, offering boons to the viewer, Buddha is supremely serene. Artist Rawat Vongla paints the original composition using acrylics on canvas, selecting a palette of tranquil blues to convey the peaceful mood.
