Description - Buddhas of the Celestial Gallery Postcar by Romio Shrestha
This remarkable collection of postcards features beautiful depictions of the Buddha by master Himalayan artist Romio Shrestha in Tibetan-style thangkas, or spiritual paintings, offering visual manifestations of the divine. Produced by Shrestha and his team of artisan monks, Buddhas of the Celestial Gallery Postcard Book depicts the life of the deity in eloquent detail and renders postmodern interpretations of an age-old Tibetan artistic tradition in which images are painstakingly created using malachite, lapis, and marigolds, and painted at times with three hairs of a cat's tail. Gathered from Romio Shrestha's best-selling Buddhas of the Celestial Gallery, these exquisite portrayals of the celestial spheres, known as mandalas, invite viewers to meditate on the Buddha's message of love, completion, and connectedness.
