56 - BUDDHA DESIGN - DAVE EDWARDS - INK - 1982 by 


NOT A RECENT DRAWING

FEATURED BY EERIE AND ENCHANTING ARTWORK GROUP – 9th June 2011

Here’s something different I found in my files. I used ink and the year was 1982.

I am Christian, not Buddhist, but I respect the fact that Buddha had a lot of wisdom. His teaching that man’s problems all stem from desire is an accurate perception in my opinion.

This drawing of mine depicts the real Buddha … those little fat “Buddhas” are not actually Buddha … Amongst Westerners new to Buddhism, Budai (the little fat one) is often confused with the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama. However, the two are visually very distinct. Gautama is commonly depicted as being tall and slender in appearance (although since no images of him from his lifetime exist, this depiction of him is unverifiable and possibly idealized); Budai is short and overweight.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    “Buddha” means"awakened one" or “the enlightened one.” So I believe. Am in the same boat as you Dave.

  • Thanks … if you are in the same boat as I am, can I share your chocolate supply? :-) “man’s problems all stem from desire” …hmmmm …. maybe the Budai (not the Buddha) had a desire for chocolate.

    Chocolate is why I could never be a Buddhist…but I love their meditations… and NO!! Never you can not ever share my chocolate supply…..coz I just flushed it down Chris’s outside toilet!!

  • Ha-ha – Chris’s outside loo is brilliant … every house should have one.
