Maitreya
Acrylic on canvas
2019

Maitretya is the Buddha of the future. He is prophesied to come to Earth in 80,000 years when the Buddha's Dharma has disappeared from the world and humans live in abject misery. I've re-interpreted him here as the Buddha of today, which can be considered the future from when he came about. Behind Maitreya is Mopo Dragnak whom is the wrathful manifestation of Maitreya. He is flanked by Asanga and Vasabandu, is attendants.
