Illuminated Iconographic Tibetan Calligraphy

Title:
Opportunity

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

The cursive Tibetan Dru-tsa calligraphy in this piece translates broadly as ‘to seize the moment’. 
These words are depicted entangled with the stems and leaves of five different coloured lotus buds. Each of these flowers represents one of the five wisdoms of the five Buddha families in their respective colours.

This painting is also available as a limited addition print, please see here for more details.
