Description - The Encyclopedia of Tibetan Symbols and Motifs by Robert Beer

For artists, designers, and all with an interest in Buddhist and Tibetan art, this is the first exhaustive reference to the seemingly infinite variety of symbols found throughout Tibetan art in line drawings, paintings, and ritual objects. Hundreds of the author's line drawings depict all the major Tibetan symbols and motifs-landscapes, deities, animals, plants, gurus, mudras (ritual hand gestures), dragons, and other mythic creatures-ranging from complex mythological scenes to small, simple ornaments.

Author Biography - Robert Beer

Robert Beer has studied and practiced Tibetan thangka painting for thirty years, including five years of study with master artists Jampa of Dharamsala and Khamtrul Rinpoche of Tashijong. Beer is one of the first Westerners to become actively involved in this art form. Over the last two decades he has concentrated on an extensive series of iconographical drawings depicting the major deities, lineage holders, and symbols that occur in the spectrum of Tibetan art.
