open studio: buddha resists mara / by kelly heaton

Buddha Resisting Mara, 2016.  Painted ceramic, wood, electronics, and wire.

A little sculpture / study of Buddha meditating beneath the Bodhi tree. To his left, is Mara assumes the appearance of death. To his right, Mara is the illusion of life. The branches of the tree are full of so many little resistors, pursuing their own journey to enlightenment.
