Boris the Buddha

Boris does the Masters

 “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.” Buddha
Boris has been on a bit of an artful adventure into Western art since landing in Australia. Firstly, he went off to see Mr Bunny (that's Rupert) at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, an unknown master of the Australian Art scene, and was nearly trampled by the crowds there to see George and Gilbert.

So inspired by Bunny's work that he decided to trek to Canberra to see the Masterpieces from Paris. He was so overwhelmed by all the beauty in the Post Impressionist exhibition, but of course he had his favorites. Firstly, Van Gogh's Starry Night Over the Rhone, like a  magnet, drew him to it from the other room, commanding undivided attention. Such powerful and vivid beauty, rich deep colours and the brush work, oh the brush work. But it was the Monet's that quietly drew him back again and again as they woven their magic spell over him and gently wrapped him up in a cocoon of subliminal light and dreamy colours.
He also got to check out a bit of the local aboriginal art:

Introducing Boris the Buddha

Boris the Buddha 
  
Meet Boris, mild mannered and ever so humble buddha but with a secret desire to see the world. He is a Chinese Buddha from Thailand. What does this mean? It means that he embraces traits of both the Chinese buddha for good luck, prosperity and abundance (& by abundance we mean the joy of life), and Thai buddha for respect (for oneself, others and the planet) and a  simple, harmonious life. So with a simple plan for an abundantly joyous life, Boris the Buddha has set off on his adventures to see the world and meet himself.
 
Boris at the Big Buddha- Samui
 
When I first met Boris he was hanging around at the Big Buddha on Samui, day dreaming about the world that the tourists he saw daily came from and getting under the feet of the monks. It occured to him, that unlike big buddha, he could just throw a few things in a little cloth, fling it over his shoulder and be on his way, and so he did. A tearful and excited goodbye to his beloved Samui and he was off, to see the world and pick up some wisdom along his way.
He is able who thinks he is able.
