A Folly to be Wise
Details & Dimensions
In this image, the Buddha is sitting carefree, indulging in a cup of tea with the idiom "Where ignorance is bliss, its a folly to be wise" written above. A common interpretation of the idiom is "ignorance is bliss". However, another way to understand this is knowing when to be conservative with ones thoughts, to accept loses, and to let things run their course.
Part of a famous series of paintings depicting the Buddha with various proverbs, this embroidered reproduction is an elegant addition which combines the famous painting with traditional silk embroidery techniques, an art piece that showcases multiple forms of Chinese art.
