Reviewing the progress photos of the Vajrasattva I painted last year this image spoke to me. We see the image emerging and taking form. From here I simplified and refined the background, adding drops of nectar. I placed a saffron cloth around his loins and the 5 jewels of the Jinnas in his Bodhisattva crown. I find significance and meaning in this version. It speaks to me of the mystery of emergence and transience, Although lost as a physical object the image lives on.
