Item Description

 

This hand-carved, hand-pulled, Moku Hanga woodblock print of Chenrezig was made and painted by artist Faith Stone. 

Chenrezig is the bodhisattva of wisdom and compassion. Here he resides in a Colorado setting with a fawn, her doe, and a fox, local wildlife, in the foreground and Eldorado Canyon in the background. He holds a wish-fulfilling jewel, a lotus, and a crystal mala. Chenrezig is renowned as the embodiment of the compassion of all the Buddhas, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Chenrezig made a vow that he would not rest until he had liberated all the beings in all the realms of suffering.

Ms. Stone paints contemporary Buddhist and Hindu art. She finds the joy in painting Buddhas is creating the space and environment for the deity to reside. "The idea is that once the painting is completed, the deity moves in. The painting no longer belongs to the artist. It is the home of a Buddha." Ms. Stone is also author of Drawing Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. "I want everyone to paint Buddhas, it’s the best!"
