Buddhism plays a central role in Pema Gyeltshen’s work. In this painting, he has painted Buddha sitting and watching the sunset, inspired by the giant Buddha statue which overlooks Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan. On the gentle yellow and red tones of the background, mantras are written in golden letters. The painting radiates peace, calmness and power.
