In the tradition of Celestial Gallery, this unique collection of striking Tibetan-style Mandala paintings of the Goddesses of the Celestial Gallery are presented together for the first time, in this distinctive format. Each work is hand-bound and stands two feet tall, reproduced from the master painter Romio Shrestha and his team of artisan monks, who render postmodern interpretations of an age-old Tibetan artistic tradition. Made from malachite, lapis and marigolds and painted at times with just three hairs of a cat s tail, these paintings are produced in hauntingly powerful detail. Goddesses depicted include: the goddesses of the arts Saraswati; the Divine Mother White Tara a protector and preserver; the Protectress Green Tara: the Dark Goddesses Palden Lhamo, guardian of the lineage of the Dalai Lamas; and Kali, a wild and uncontrollable consort of Shiva, a devotee of time and keeper of the shadows within ourselves."
