About this Gautama Buddha and Phaya Naga Painting
The talented Thai artist from the gallery has great inspiration from the incredible Gautama Buddha story. He is one of the greatest religious figures and a charismatic leader of Buddhism. This Buddhist inspired art is a portrayal of a phenomenal event between the Lord Gautama Buddha and Nantopanata. Once in the past, the Buddha and his 500 follower monks had traveled to preach the teaching to villages people. Yet, the path was in the wilderness with the dangerous rivers, forests, and animals.
To get to the destination safely, the Gautama Buddha and the following monks used meditative insights and miracle psychic power to fly over the land. However, Nantopanata who is the main lord of Nagas, mythical serpent-dragons, was very furious that the Buddhist monks flew over his palace. The act is a metaphor for passing over his head which he perceived as disrespect to his dignity and honor. Hence, Nantopanata created an obstacle to those monks so they could not fly over. Then, a monk named Maudgalyayana volunteered to flight with Nantopanata. He transformed himself to be a powerful Phaya Naga and won with the victory.
