This was my extra credit piece.
The imagery of the drawing vastly portrays Buddhist culture. The traditional orange robe as well as the decorative head piece displayed, resonates with the asian-inspired religion. My interpretation of the multi-sectioned background would be that it represents energy flow being emitted from Buddha. The balance, which is shown through the stands and the yin-yang symbol, is a great representation of equality and a heightened state of mind. Also, the colorfulness of the image brings about the vibrant aspects of the culture. Overall, the depiction of the Buddha and Buddhism is transparent and elegant.
