"All that we are is the result of what we have thought" is a famous quote by Buddha, and a very powerful one as that. My exhibit's topic is Buddha himself along with the religion Buddhism and symbols that represent them both. You can expect to see various Buddha portraits and sculptures and big pieces that are bright and colorful with many things going on within each piece. I am not a Buddhist, but I do live by the words of Buddha each and every day to live through and strengthen my mind, body, and soul. For example In my exhibit I have the piece "Seated Bodhisattva" by Japanese representing the common meditation pose that Buddhist use in their religious acts. Also, "The view of the Gardens and Buddhist Temple.." by Felice Beato is an extraordinary photo of a real temple and garden which gives you the best example of what Buddhist do their duties of strengthening their beliefs and lives in their own way. This topic is something that is truly important to me because some quotes and some inspiring acts have gotten me through rough patches in life. I want to share with people my personal beliefs and experiences with art that I am passionate about so this is my Art Exhibit and I hope you let your mind wander and enjoy it.
