This painting is 18" x 22." Created for the GlubDub Siamese Twins Project. I started the piece by researching Siamese Twins, starting with Chang and Eng Bunker (1811–1874), Thai brothers born in Siam, now Thailand. From there, I looked at Thailand as a source of inspiration for the patterns and the main figure. Since I collect Buddhas, I wanted to make my interpretation of this famous and intriguing figure. My "Buddha" was created using many of the characteristics of the Thai Buddha, according to the ancient Pali texts: hands like lotuses about to bloom, fingertips turned back like petals, head like an egg, chin like a mango stone, nose like a parrot's beak, earlobes lengthened by the earrings of royalty, eyelashes like a cow's, eyebrows like drawn bows. The legs are referring to Josephene Myrtle Corbin, aka The Four-Legged Woman. The "Siamese" or two-headed flower is a form I have been playing with in numerous paintings because I like the duality symbolism.
