Hold on to Nothing / Buddhist Print
Buddha Calligraphy Artwork Print
This stunning and original piece of artwork creates the face of Buddha entirely out of calligraphy, using the words ‘Hold on to Nothing and fall into the Midst of Everything’. The aerwork is inspired from a poem written by Teijitsu, an 18th century abbess of Hakujuan, a Zen Buddhist nunnery in Japan, at the moment of her awakening.
“She saw that all phenomena arose, abided, and fell away. She saw that even knowing this arose, abided, and fell away. Then she knew there was nothing more than this, no ground, nothing to lean on, stronger than the cane she held. Nothing to lean upon at all, and no one leaning… and she opened the clenched fist in her mind and let go, and fell, into the midst of everything”.
In the stress of modern life, it is easy to forget that your mind set is everything. This artwork invites you open up your mind, expand your awareness and experience everything here and now, just as it is. The artwork is hand screen printed on high quality recycled A3 paper. As each piece is hand screen printed, each print varies slightly and is unique.
Note that the artwork is sold without the frame displayed in the product pictures. The print is dispatched in a durable, recycled cardboard poster tube.
