I was inspired to paint that stupa after my visits of several beautiful stupas in Nepal, Kathmandu.
A stupa (Sanskrit: m.,स्तूप “heap”) is a mound-like or hemispherical structure containing relics (śarīra – typically the remains of Buddhist monks or nuns) that is used as a place of meditation (Wikipedia).
This painting has been exhibited in San Francisco Zen Center during solo exhibition in 2017 and in Los Angeles during the Budart Meditative Art Festival, 2017.
