Fine art based on Pali Canon

Postby SamKR » Fri Sep 11, 2009 10:40 pm

Is there any website for collection of fine arts based on Pali Canon?
I would love to see fine arts related to the life of the Buddha (and the society during his times) and his teachings.

Hi Sam,

Me too! It must be a Nevada thing, as I am interested in that too. We have some of the best collections of fine arts right here in Las Vegas, with the Wynn Collection and others.

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -

Hi Sam,

You may find useful the Art section of the Sadhu! directory:

I just googled 'Thai Buddhist murals' and there's countless links (not even to mention Mahayana art ) to some beautiful stuff...what you're looking for is out there...
