Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This depicts Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha, or simply The Buddha.
He is the legendary man on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.
The Buddha taught a Middle Way between a life of indulgence and an overly strict life of a saint or yogi.
This wall scroll is designed to have a classic look (like an antique).
It should be noted that this is a "partial print". The black detailed lines were printed on the special handmade paper. We don't do a lot of partial prints like this, but many people kept requesting antique-styled wall scrolls. I finally picked some up on my last trip.
The use of the printing process for this artwork keeps the price of the artwork affordable (it would be more than 3 times more if this was 100% hand-painted). All of the colored portions are hand-painted.
