This is one of the biggest watercolors I have ever made( 49 x 65 inches). It is entitle ” Think we are gonna need a Bodhisattva”.
The concept of Bodhisattva is a very interesting belief in some ancient schools of Buddhism. Bodhisattvas are considered enlightened beings of true compassion and power who have put off entering Nirvana in order to help others attain enlightenment. For me is really interesting how a beliefs system had develop such an ideal and I wanted to play with that concept.
At the end we are all beings paddling in the same boat in a complex sea with no much knowledge about directions more than our own spiritual certainty.
I enjoyed very much doing this painting.
Have a nice weekend!
