About works / performance

Buddhists throughout the world are taught according to mythological concepts that “women” is impurity and incapable of awakening without first being reborn as men.
With negative teaching towards women, the Theravada Buddhist in Thailand have completely misplaced its order of fully ordained nuns and tradition of female exclusion from sacred site and spiritual pilgrimage path in Ominesan in Nara Prefecture still live on.
As the teachings of Buddha were written long after his dismiss and became different in different cultures. The artwork attempt to bring back the positive attitudes towards women in the Buddhist teaching that lost through patriarchy history, to shed light on the mythology believing that set women apart from the spiritual freedom in Buddhist religious.
