work in progress, Bodhidharma meets the Emperor Wu
At December 2013 we decided to paint one of the most important scene from Zen tradition, changes the world afterwards. We need it as a wall in open-air tea house. The founder of Zen meets the Emperor of Great China, and changes the religious character of the country. "Why he have a shoe on his head?", - sacred part of human body along the Asia, this is still the question for the interested in Zen. When the huge paint was almost done, series of occurrences didn't let us to finish the face of Master. Then many things happens, as its always happens here, picture was damaged and lost.
Now after the year break we want to ask one of the most talented painter I ever met to create that scene again, usual size this time andnot related to that previous pic. And gift it to the person, who represents Zen today. And make a copies to all who want it. And post it all here then.
