Three Colors of Buddha

The similarity between these three statues is that they are illustrating Buddha. These statues all have a different color and concept to their own interpretation on how to portray Buddha. The color chosen for these statue reminds me of my siblings and I. My brother reminds of the red one due to his easily triggered personality. One of his faults lies in trusting in his anger as a solution to his problems. As he slowly matures he has been learning to let things go. The clam face on the red Buddha statue is what I hope my brother will be able to become when he truly controls his anger. The green one represents me. Although I am calm and I don’t have pent up anger, I struggle to find motivation and inspiration. I relax to the point that it becomes hard for me to accomplish the goals I had set out for myself. The white colored Buddha reminds me of my older sister. The color white has the ability to reflect other colors. She reflects on other people problems and putting their issues before her own that it eventually wears her out. The white colored Buddha is almost faded into the white wall behind the statue. Although these are all beautiful statue with their own uniqueness to them, I reminded of myself and my siblings when I look at these Buddha statues and the problems that we have to work within ourselves.
