The Double Blessings
There is an interesting concept behind my painting "Double Blessings".
Lord Ganesha is the Hindu god of good fortune who is worshipped in India. Households that worship him invite prosperity and good luck. Besides this similarity in the two images is the resemblance in their appearance
One of the most beloved of Buddha's images, the Laughing Buddha (Maitreya or Mi Lo Foh) can be found in many Chinese homes and Chinese restaurants. He brings prosperity and Wealth luck to all. The wonderful Buddha of Happiness also loves to pick up all our troubles and problems and put them in the huge calico bag he carries around. Then, in return, he transforms them into abundant happiness.
Though – unlike Laughing Buddha - Lord Ganesha has a head of an elephant, both have a big, round tummy. It is believed that the bigger the belly of a Laughing Buddha, the more auspicious he is. Caressing or stroking his belly in the morning is said to bring good luck.
Painted in golden yellow and red hues, this painting is aptly titled Double Blessings. Place the painting Double Blessings on the wall facing the main door of your business or home and be twice blessed!
