Illuminated Iconographic Tibetan Calligraphy

oṃ maṇipadme hūṃ

Acrylic and pure gold leaf on mounted board. 55 x 30 cm. 2012

Historically, sacred mantras were held in the highest regard and honored in pure gold lettering on tablets of precious lapis lazuli.
Here, the Mani mantra oṃ maṇipadme hūṃ expressed according to the classical divine proportionate construction of the Tibetan Uchen script, sits upon a flowing lapis background.

As an embodiment of infinite understanding engendering impartial loving-kindness, those who speak, hear or see the Mani mantra are said to benefit. Often placed high within a household, they are considered to bless, purify and protect residents and their environment.

The art piece is available as a high quality giclée art print form the ART & PRINT STORE here - hand gilded in Pure gold leaf.
