Cat of Unique Charm
One of the most superb paintings of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III
The painting “Cat of Unique Charm" was created in 1991 and belongs to the “Fangfa School," one of the 16 schools of painting founded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Except H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, no one else can paint using this marvellous technique. Magical appeal underlies this painting. This creative technique comes from a state of wisdom.That is why it is not an ordinary painting. The accompanying scene near the cat was painted with only a small number of brush strokes yet contains the style of stone seals and an air of scholarship. Both the form and spirit of scene are captured. This work is truly one in which ink was masterfully used in a sparing way.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has decided not to make this genre of magically charming paintings anymore. He has not since created another work of unsurpassed artistry in this same genre. Thus, this painting is a form of art that has been discontinued.
One of the one hundred limited release copies of this small-scale, painting “Cat of Unique Charm" sold at auction for US$253,000, which is the highest per square foot selling price of any duplicate painting in the world. The prices of sold duplicate paintings by the most famous first-rate masters of art in the world cannot match the prices of sold duplicate paintings by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.
