Here is the very intriguing backstory:
"According to ancient Japanese legend, children who die prematurely are sent to the underworld as punishment for causing great sorrow to their parents. They are sent to Sai no Kawara, the river of souls in purgatory, where they pray for Buddha’s compassion by building small stone towers, piling stone upon stone. But underworld demons, answering to the command of the old hag Shozuka no Baba, soon arrive and scatter their stones and beat them with iron clubs mercelessly. Bodhisattva Jizo-Anarcho comes to the rescue by hiding the children in the sleeves of his robe thus defeating the evil attacks of Shozuka no Baba and her malicious demons. The message of Jizo-Anarcho to her as she is forced to flee in frustrated defeat is imortalized in this statue…"

and please only one entry per person.
All 5 artists will exhibit new works, and I'm pleased to share with you images of my key piece, Canadian Tiger. The painting is 18x24 and the theme is Canadian Nature. Every animal in the painting is native to Canada and the colors, like the Canadian flag, are red and white. My intention behind the painting was to express my fondness, love and pride of Canada, as my hometown of Vancouver gets ready to host the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
For information about the paintings or the show, please contact Ken Lum: email@example.com. Opening reception runs from 7 pm to 10 pm, with after party at The Melk. The show runs until March 14th.
