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.
