A wonderful work by the Singaporean sand artist to articulate Buddhism is seen on this video. Lawrence Koh, the artist – international Sand Artist based in Singapore and a multi-disciplinary artist specializing in the performing arts (vocalist, actor, theatre artist, stage performer) & the visual arts.
As a sand artist, I have always wanted to pay tribute to the amazing historical Shakyamuni Buddha. After so long, I have finally made it happened on Vesak Day itself!
“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world” – Siddharta Gautama
May the victims of any mental and physical suffering be protected and safe. May all sentient beings be blessed with love, wisdom and happiness!
Having performed my sand art in Singapore / Asia and international performances and events, I totally enjoyed seeing stories being told and evolved through sand, music and light; bringing audience into the surreal world of sand art. May the beauty of sand art bring happiness, inspiration and motivation to everyone… Never forget your dreams!
“To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour.”
