D'où Venons Nous? / Que Sommes Nous? / Où Allons Nous?

Gauguin's koan, inscribed in French on this late, great painting.

With this pith work and title, Gauguin is added to my roll call of non-Buddhists-more-Buddhist-than-Buddhists [Fernando Pessoa, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Agnes Martin, Thomas Merton, et al].

Where Do We Come From?/What Are We?/Where Are We Going?
