The life of Buddha has been a subject of many a tale and subsequently art.
The artist of this Buddha painting on silk divides the canvas into clear cut
sections to narrate the story of his birth and a saint's prediction that
led to him being kept away from the realities of life. In some sections, the
artist shows Buddha coming face to face with old age, sickness and death that
changes the course of his life. The lower segments see him leave home in
search of nirvana, till he attains it, including episodes relating to Sujata
The artist has devoted a major and central part to the Parinirvana of Buddha with his
followers around him. As in all paintings with Buddha as its theme, there is
peace and tranquillity reflected. The artist has adhered to chronological
narration of events, using a bright and colourful palette.
