Since I have been very young, I have collected Buddha statues. I have always been drawn to the image of Buddha. In this painting I have imagined all of those earthly pleasures
and temptations that the Buddha would struggle or not, to resist. Or at least not become a slave to. Then again he looks very happy, maybe he has just consumed a grape.
