Fred Burns, a professional animator from Taos in Chapel Hill through May, sketches Bhrikuti, the female companion of the White Avalokiteshvara, Lord of Compasion, a 14th century statue by an unknown sculptor, at the Ackland Art Museum on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 16, 2014. “I love the rhythmicquality,” he says. “She’s taking a step and also being static at the same time. It has that off-balance feeling that’s also very calm. It’s just beautiful.”
