- The word thangka translates to "recorded message." Thangka painting is an ancient Tibetan Buddhist art form that combines deities, symbolism, and sacred geometry.
- This golden masterpiece thangka features a Tibetan mandala style design with Shakyamuni Buddha in the center surrounded by the sacred geometry Flower of Life symbol.
- Our Tibetan thangkas are hand painted by master artists and apprentices in the Kathmandu Valley. Thangka painting schools in Nepal help to keep Tibetan traditions alive.
According to tradition, Shakyamuni traveled widely throughout the Indian subcontinent sharing his enlightened wisdom, promoting peace, and teaching people how to unleash the great potential of their lives. His compassionate intention was to enable all people to attain the same awakened state of life that he had attained.
This sacred geometry symbol, the Flower of Life, is one of the most important and sacred patterns in the universe. It is one of the strongest sacred geometric shapes, and can be used as a tool for connecting during meditation.
Each detail is painted by hand on cotton canvas using natural mineral and vegetable pigments with 24K gold accents. The intricate brushstrokes and extraordinary detail make these thangkas genuine works of art. It comes unframed and ready for Western style framing of your choosing.
Measures approximately 12 by 12 inches.
Thangka does not include a frame. We suggest shopping with your local frame or craft store to select a style that best suits you and your thangka! Looks great in a classic Western style photo frame or wooden magnetic poster hanger frames.
