About the Art

The concept of a Bodhisattva in Buddhism embodies profound spiritual ideals, emphasizing compassion, enlightenment, and altruism. These enlightened beings choose to delay their own enlightenment to assist others in achieving liberation from suffering.

The artist’s watercolor painting of the Bodhisattva likely captures the essence of these spiritual concepts. Through watercolor, Sangachhen may have aimed to portray the ethereal, transcendent nature of the Bodhisattva. The fluidity of watercolor might symbolize the fluidity of the Bodhisattva’s compassion, which flows boundlessly, touching and affecting all beings.
