As dusk fell, Devaputra Mara, the chief of all the demons, or maras, in this world, tried to disturb Siddhartha’s concentration by conjuring up many fearful apparitions. He manifested hosts of terrifying demons, some throwing spears, some firing arrows, some trying to burn him with fire, and some hurling boulders and even mountains at him. Through the force of his concentration, the weapons, rocks, and mountains appeared to him as a rain of fragrant flowers, and the raging fires became like offerings of rainbow lights.

Original is an acrylic on glass (roughly) 32X30, painted in 2003.

Philadelphia artist ~ 35 years old~ To see my other works please visit www.facebook.com/KevinJCooperArtwork . In the warmer months of the year I can be seen at many concerts and music festivals, mostly related (in some way) to Grateful Dead or Phish culture. An example of these (for all of you still going to Nikelback shows) would be The Wannee Festival, Gathering of the Vibes, The Allgood Festival, etc.
