New ideas are being established, while old ones continually reinforced. There have been many methods of observation and stylistic rendering in the past 2000 odd years of Indian art, systems of art diversely individualistic.

In this wholly, chromatically rendered image of Buddha, a shapely graceful head smiles through. The painting is charged with vibrant colour and textural effects, achieved through oil based paints and enamel. The enamel not only holds the texture well but gives it a very smooth finish, contrary to the rest of the surface which is rough and granulated.

Buddha is depicted as the eternal and universal contemplative Mahapurush, with certain superhuman lakshanas such as usnisa, the symbol of transcendental wisdom, elongated ear etc. The face is given a mask-like tranquility, breaking through the barriers of colour and texture, to express the spiritual elevation of the Buddha.

Using a very limited colour palette, the artist has shaped and formed the subject matter and the treatment according to his individual vision. Using different yet related mediums, the artist has courageously experimented and shines through this work.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
