Citipati Impermanence Framed Thangka

  |  
  • This Citipati thangka is hand painted with beautiful bold colors and gold details in a traditional brocade frame.
  • Our thangkas are hand painted by master artists and apprentices.  Thangka schools in Nepal help to keep Tibetan traditions alive.
  • Each painting is done entirely by hand on canvas before being sewn into a stunning silk and polyester brocade frame.  It's the perfect addition to your home decor, meditation area, or altar space.

The skeleton dance is a sacred Tibetan ritual found in Himalayan Buddhism.  The Citipati skeletons are a pair of lovers whose dance represents the liberation and enlightenment that comes from accepting our impermanence.  The Citipati remind us to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.  Despite their dark appearance, they actually represent perfect awareness and a joyous freedom from attachment.

The traditional Tibetan brocade fabric is a polyester and silk blend, making it a long-lasting and versatile material.  The black brocade features gold lotus designs with red and yellow framing around the painting.

Frame measures approximately 23 inches wide and 37 inches tall.
