Twin Dragons

Twin Dragons Dancing with the Pearl of Truth. This started out as a coloured pencil drawing 10 years ago and I scanned it to work on colours and shapes with Corel Painter.

This is a metaphor for two enlightened beings playing with the ultimate truth. What is the truth? Look, look, it is that which is reading these words and seeing this picture. One thought of right or wrong, this or that, beautiful or ugly, and the pearl is gone.



Zen Master Yanguan said to his attendant: “Bring me the rhinoceros fan.” The attendant replied: “The rhinoceros fan is broken.” The master said: “Then bring me the rhinoceros!”

For no reason this rhinoceros emerged from my mind today and the virtual darkness gave way to light and form.
