The ‘Eternal Embrace’ is a take on the symbiotic relationship between spirituality and nature. The Buddha attained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree. And this painting captures the eternal bond and brotherhood between the two. While the Buddha is deep in meditation looking through time and space, nature covers him with a cool shade to protect his mortal body from the harshness of this world.
Does that mean that even nature took part in the process of attaining enlightenment? Or, is nature the absolute enlightened being, where we humans can only try to achieve once again, what has already been achieved by the green one? Maybe the truth that we all seek is right outside our window, with the birds and the flowers and the wind meandering through the dancing leaves?

It would also be a good gift for the extended family members to signify the bond that is shared between close-knit families. Or to your father who has struggled through life to keep the family safe and sound, to encourage him to find the ubiquitous peace all around, if only one would look around in leisure
