Orchid 2007
Medium: Acrylic on paper. Size: 14 x 9.5 cm. By Jimmy Quek Prabhakara

Siew Hooi passed me a small but heavy box yesterday while she was tidying the cupboards in a room. She told me that it was my Treasure. I opened the box and I found many Chinese Seal Stones in it. Some have carved with words and some are new. These are my collection of Seals and Stones that I acquired when I was still a school boy more than 30 years ago.

Chinese name Seal.

Chinese Name Seal.

3 Seal Sones with a cute little lion on it. I bought it from the bookshop.

This stone has 3 sided seals, from the words it tells that it were carved in 1973 November.

This is first time I painted a portrait of Sayadaw U Pannathami. Sayadaw U Pannathami is the Religious Advisor of Vipassana Meditation Centre (Singapore). Born in Myanmar in 1948. He received higher ordination at the age of twenty. He graduated with Sasanadhaja Dhammacariya and in his early years, Sayadaw had practiced meditation under illustrious masters, notably the late Most Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw as well as Sayadaw U Pandita. Sayadaw has many years of experience guiding meditators, easterners and westerners alike, particularly in the practice of Insight (Vipassana) Meditation. He had carried the torch of Dhamma to many countries: Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Belgium, USA and UK and is well respected for his skillful guidance, loving-kindness and compassion. Since January 2000, Sayadaw U Pannathami has been the abbot of Panditarama Sydney Meditation Center, Sydney, Australia.

I have updated them at PABHA website at , click the link to view them if you wish. Hope you enjoy my small works.
