SHADOWMAN - Gotama
The legend of Gautama Buddha is monetised throughout the world. He’s a global brand with books, merchandise and even films to his name. His form is recognisable in households worldwide and can often be found decorating boutique health spas. He’s the ambassador for well-being and the face of all things profoundly spiritual. We are presented with the idea of Buddha as a man, a myth and legend. However, the modern western world is fascinated by a brand of spirituality, often simplified, solutions-based information to solve fundamental challenges. As a result, we forget why we must know of Buddha, why his messages resonate through time, and why his wisdom does not overshadow his physical form.
DESCRIPTION - He sits under the tree of Wisdom. In his stillness, he observes the whole universe. He questions his form, his idea of self on earth. And yet, the world is being blinded by his shadow.
