Description

Sorry, this painting hos now been sold and is no longer available.

 

This is a beautiful unique hand painted Tibetan Thangka.

It is painted on cotton canvas with black, grey, green, blue, orange and  gold.  Image size – 1125mm x 840mm. Total size with frame – 1355mm x 1070mm.

This very large incredibly striking painting is presented behind special non-reflective uv glass in a bespoke dark wooden frame. The distressed finish adds an aged feel which compliments the art work perfectly.

 

The word mandala comes from the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit and roughly translated it means circle. Mandalas are used in both Hinduism and Buddhism as an aid for spiritual practice, concentration and meditation. A mandala is often defined as a geometric design intended to symbolize the universe. The word mandala itself is derived from the root manda, which means essence, to which the suffix la, meaning container, has been added.

As well as being used for meditation purposes, good mandala paintings are renowned for having a fantastic energy and this Thangka we handpicked in the Himalayas demonstrates this beautifully.

At the top centre of this painting you can see the Avalokiteshvara with his one thousand arms and eleven heads. The Dalai Lama is said to be a reincarnation of Avalokiteshvara; the God of Endless Compassion.

With ten mandalas and hundreds of Buddha illustrations the striking design, rich colour and superb detail in this painting all combine perfectly to make a truly stunning piece.

We very much like the many depictions of Hervajra, a form of the Yidam Heruka. Hevajra can be seen intertwined in the artwork several times surrounded by flames whilst embracing his female partner Nairatma, to symbolise the removal of all contrasts, which brings about a blissful unity.

A wonderful painting!
