“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”
Gautama Buddha

I have always been intrigued by the sayings of Lord Buddha. They seem so logical. As a child, we grew up reading various stories about Lord Buddha. There is so much to learn from his teachings. His association with India where he attained enlightenment makes it extra special for us. We used to refer him as Siddhartha Gautam Buddha. He was a sage from ancient Shakya republic on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.  Buddha means the Awakened one. For more on Gautam Buddha you can read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddha.

 I have been meaning to create wall art depicting the serene expression of Lord Buddha in meditation. I was inspired by  a lot of paintings and wall art and finally sketched a design for my work.The most important task was to get the expression right. I am really glad and feel that I succeeded to some extent. I hope this Buddha wall art brings peace, harmony and sense of enlightenment wherever it is placed.

I used black quilling strips with golden edges. The golden edges really make the art look more grand. It took a lot of rolling to finish his hair but the effort was surely worth it. Luckily I found a frame that goes perfectly with the golden edges of paper strips used in the art. The face of lord Buddha measures around 4.5" x 6" . The frame is 11" X 14" with an 8 " x 10" opening.
