Tumble and dance along with these lovely Bosatsu figures by Seattle artist Tomoko Suzuki.
Print Measures: 14" x 11"
From the Artist:"Bosatsuis a Japanese word for “Bodhisattva” which originated as a Sanskrit word for a “being who aspires to Buddhahood.” Bosatsu carry out altruistic practices to achieve enlightenment and are compassionate beings who postpone their own entry into Nirvana in order to lead others toward enlightenment. The plump figures, which I call “Chubbies”, are the predominant icons in my art and my visual interpretation of the Bodhisattvas. These Bodhisattvas are struggling and suffering in order to advance to enlightenment while helping others to do the same, in the muddy pond of earthly desires."
