Art is considered to be 60,000 years old and goes back through time
to Shamanic origins throughout Asia. In the East, paintings are considered
transmitions, an unbroken line from ancient times to the present.
The individual artist as well as individual creativity is unimportant,
and the Dieties are beautiful in their own light and transmit spiritual
or religious energies. I want to appreciate and pay tribute to all
the artists over centuries that have contributed to this rich tradition.
I have created many modern images in this sacred tradition, and it
would be impossible without drawing from many of the great Hindu painters.
