"Benzaiten Dancing in the Forest"
Acrylic on Canvas - 140x120cm - May2017
Benzaiten is the Japanese goddess of everything that flows: words (and knowledge, by extension), speech, eloquence, and music. In her spare time from instructing humans, Benzainten goes into the forest and dances for hours. She forgets her words and knowledge for a while, and she lets herself flow until she becomes one with the forest movements. Sometimes, when the dance is right, she forgets for a few seconds all her duties as a goddess.
