Under the Bodhi Tree, Blazing Stupa by Roshan Houshmand.

Roshan Houshmand is an Iranian/American artist who exhibits both nationally and internationally and lives in the Catskills of New York.

She teaches drawing, painting and art history at State University of New York and Southern New Hampshire University.

Houshmand has a body of work currently on display at Michigan Medicine, which fuses eastern and western art traditions and techniques, reflecting her multicultural background.

Each art piece has a leaf from the Bodhi Tree in Bodhgaya, India, where Buddha is said to have sat and achieved enlightenment.

Houshmand began this series as an aid to her meditation practices after visiting India and studying traditional Buddhist thangka painting and drawing at a monastic art school in Nepal.
