Illuminated Iconographic Tibetan Calligraphy

Primordial Purity, Golden World

Dutch gold, copper leaf and acrylic paint on heavy watercolour paper, 53 x 76 cm

The uppermost line of Tibetan cursive script looms in the sky translates as ‘universal, common ground of primordial purity’. In the riches of the earth below, symbolised by floral swirls of gold and copper bounty, are black letters that translate as ‘the mythological golden basis of our known world, glorious and magnificent’.

The innate purity within every person experiences the majesty of the universe. This interrelationship between heaven and earth catalyses creativity of humankind.
