$ 360.00 In stock
Product description: I had somewhat of a "vision" or remembrance of a dream of this piece upon waking up from an afternoon nap--a stylized Buddha with black slits for eyes. This piece has all of the iconic elements of Buddha statues, plus the addition of a coolie hat. I can't remember if the hat was also in the dream but it must have been because I would not otherwise put a Buddha in a coolie hat. I shall continue with afternoon naps. 16" x 20", Colored pencil & ink on tinted paper. Colored pencil and ink on 98-lb. tinted paper
