Under The Bodhi Tree

“Under the Bodhi Tree” is a limited edition of 10 screen prints. The Bodhi tree is the sacred tree under which Buddha is said to have achieved enlightenment. It takes 100 to 3,000 years for the tree to fully grow. The blossoming lotus flower has many layers of symbolism, appearing in creation stories, enlightenment stories, and in association with the chakras. The ultimate meaning is that it represents awakening to the spiritual reality of life. The pink lotus is the supreme lotus, generally reserved for the highest deity, the Great Buddha.
