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."
