About this Walking Monk Painting
This handmade Walking Monk Painting is from an inspiration from the Buddhist tradition, Alms Giving. The artist wants to represent one of the most prominent parts of Thai culture, which has its root in Buddhism. In Thailand, the ritual of giving alms to monks is called Tak Bat in the Thai language.
According to the Buddhist tradition, Monks must rise early at dawn daily to collect alms or freshly cooked food from the Buddhist followers or the lay people. Alms giving is not a charity. But, it is an opportunity for lay people to make merit, do good deeds by giving back to others. It also teaches the Buddhists in society to share with one another and become less selfish.
Moreover, the portrait of a monk walking barefoot also symbolizes the simple life. It is the life of letting go or detaching from the material world. Inviting this Monk painting into your living room will bring calm, peacefulness, and tranquility. However, we advise NOT to place the Walking Monk Painting into a bedroom. As it is not an appropriate place, and indicate disrespect to the Buddhist culture.
