This piece is inspired by the Buddha of Hungry Ghosts who is suppose to hold a treasure which is the antidote for miserliness.
The thought of hungry ghost always reminds me of the vacant and vast dry land where thirst and hungry seems inevitable. The color represents the dry land and the emotion of the miserliness is represented through the dry waves of dust.

A Bhutanese contemporary artist for over 19 years, I am popularly known as Tintin. I like to re-examine Buddhist and Bhutanese concepts, freeing them from their expected, familiar contexts and reframing their meaning.
