Illuminated Iconographic Tibetan Calligraphy

Laughing in the Face of Stupidity

Acrylic on heavy watercolour paper, 57x 76 cm, 2007

Blue represents emptiness. Through taming your mind you may attain insight to find liberation from ignorance.

Ignorance is the root of the remaining four emotions described in this set: Anger, Attachment, Pride and Jealousy. This is the freedom of wisdom, symbolised here by the bud of potential.

A more detailed explanation of the Five Skulls is given here.

This painting is available as an individual print or as a set of five prints of the ‘Laughing in the Face of Death’ series.
