Dukkha by Little Robot

This is a 12.5" x 26.5" giclée print from an original watercolor painting. The central flower is a Lotus surrounded by lotus leaves and Magnolia Grandiflora. Amongst its leaves European bee-eaters get on with the tasks of life. From a limited edition of 50 prints, each is signed and numbered by the artist. Dukkha is a Sanskrit term which usually translated as 'Suffering' although some say it is best translated as 'dis-ease'. The concept is central to Buddhist philosophy and is the first of the four noble truths - 'Life is Suffering', or 'Life is Dukkha'.
