Description

This is a beautiful unique hand painted Tibetan Thangka.

It is painted on cotton canvas with black, brown, blue and gold, image size – 490mm x 370mm, framed size 660mm x 580mm.

This art work has been sympathetically framed using a distressed dark brown black scoop moulding that compliments it wonderfully.

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.

This painting features a strong single mandala design with many Buddha illustrations. There are also several depictions of Hervajra, a form of the Yidam Heruka. The golden flames which blaze and dance around Hervajara enhance the sense of movement already present in the image while the rich dark colours and extremely detailed mandala exude a mystical quality that makes this painting so fascinating to look at.
