'Footprint on Stone'
Rich crimson reveals a tenuous outline beneath delicate lotus buds. Parinya Nanjai depicts the or "footprint of the Buddha." Beautifully stylized with intricately patterned symmetry, this schematized design shows all the toes to be of equal length. When Buddha stepped back onto earth after reaching enlightenment, his feet made an imprint where he stepped, the first and most honored of these imprints being the supposed imprint atop Adam's Peak in Ceylon. These footprints are venerated in all Buddhist countries.
