Tibetan Art

Seeing beautiful handcrafted Tibetan/Himalayan art like the above brings back many fond memories of my trips to Tibet and Nepal.  The treks were definitely spiritual journeys with a lot of energy work done at sacred sites, etc., but there was also a little time for other fun things as well--like shopping! 

Of course there were a lot of trinkets purchased to take back to friends at home, but two of the most special things I bought for myself was a bronze statue and a thangka.  Actually I'd never seen a thangka before (pronounced something like tonk-ah), and I was fascinated with the intricacies of these special scroll paintings.

You don't find these much outside of that area, so I was delighted when I found a wonderful, easily accessible, online source of Tibetan art.  It specializes in statues and thangkas and I wanted to share it.

Their thangkas are copied from ancient sadhana texts and old master-works that were based on visions or rituals, and each one is hand painted by Himalayan artists using their own paints made from minerals and herbs.  Some of their thangkas are even framed with brocade--Tibetan style. 

The Medicine Buddha statue shown at the bottom of this page is similar to the one I bought, and if you like mandalas, this brocaded Mandala is similar to the one I brought home.  Their White Tara statues are especially nice. 

Just click on any link on their home page to see a complete list of all the amazing things that they have to offer.  They have several hundred statues, paintings, and other items such as Tibetan singing bowls, gongs, and even 4 foot long Tibetan horns!!!     

I remember sitting one night in a Tibetan monastery about three feet directly in front of a pair of Tibetan horns as they were being blown.  They were so long they had to be supported on a wooden platform.  As the monks were chanting, beating a huge, 6 foot gong, and blowing the long horns--all at the same time--the walls of the monastery were literally shaking.  I could actually feel garbage being lifted out of my auric field just from the vibration of it all.  It was fabulous!                                        --P.

Important note:  Their statues and thangkas are original art and often one of a kind.  If you see any you really like, for yourself or as a special gift, don't wait to get it.  It could be gone when you go back.  (I learned the hard way.)
