Etching on paper
Orientalism became a principal subject for the Dutch artist Marius Bauer who travelled extensively from the end of 1880s on painting expeditions. This etching pays tribute to the magnificent statue of Buddha in the ninth century temple at Mendut in Indonesia (then Dutch East Indies). A child prays at the feet of the deity while two other statues on either side of the Buddha are only partially visible in the etching. These are the statues of Bodhisattvas Avalokiteshwara and Vajrapani at the temple. The brilliance of the etching lies in the serenity inside the temple that it succeeds in conveying.
