Technique : Acrylic on canvas

The concept of enlightenment and peace is projected through the Buddha image. As the Buddha passed away in the forest, people are drawn to realise and appreciate the importance of nature. Panya wants to draw our minds to get in touch with the spirit in nature; we are not just living in nature but it is inside us. We need to practice to create, to become aware and to take good care of the spirit and nature; instead of paying too much attention to just the physical aspects of life.
