Rich crimson reveals a tenuous outline beneath delicate lotus buds. Parinya Nanjai depicts the Buddhapada, 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. Acrylic on canvas; the work arrives in a frame of rain tree wood.
About the Artist: Thai artisan Parinya Nanjai says about his art: ‘We can essentially learn about art on our own, through everything that surrounds us -- nature, culture, everything. A few years of art in the technical school taught me to love painting and I know this to be my vocation. I prefer the northern Thai style because I was born here; it‘s always in my way of thinking and in my heart. I paint from my own thoughts, and the Lanna style is always on my mind.‘
The Parinya Nanjai Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Parinya Nanjai in Thailand. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
