Eskimo Buddha

A friend of mine showed me a bronze Eskimo Buddha he had had made. It inspired me to make a Mughal painting version of the representation. I also commissioned an Indian artist to make me a small wood figurine depiction of my painting which I will post here shortly...

Although I am a Muslim, I also feel that Eskimo Buddhism as a non religious belief suits my lifestyle and way of life. It has made me, I believe, a better person. Certainly much luckier!

You will find that the face of the painting is the graphic basis for Eskimo Buddhas' representation in several online manifestations.

Am I Eskimo Buddha? LOL!

This work was dedicated to my dying Father Aziz. It took five months to complete.
