Branches of cherry blossoms against a golden sunset. Some of the petals are dancing in the air. A quote from the Zen Buddhist Heart of Perfect Wisdom sutra is painted in Chinese calligraphy:
Form itself is emptiness
Emptiness itself is form
The term "heart sutra" refers to the prayer at the heart of the Buddhist teachings. Writing it is a meditative practice. This miniature feng shui piece, part of the Zen Mandala modern art series (botanical abstract landscapes in a contemporary Asian style), is a miniature original acrylic painting (2.5" x 3.5", standard trading card size). The copyright watermark does not appear on the actual painting.
