Boldly reinterpreting an age-old Tibetan artistic tradition, this enormous album
offers gorgeously detailed representations of celestial spheres, known as
mandalas. Merely gazing upon them is meant to inspire heightened states of
intention and clarity. In CELESTIAL GALLERY, master painter Romio Shrestha and
his team of artisan monks have rendered postmodern interpretations of these
enlightened Buddha realms. Made from hand-ground malachite, lapis, marigolds,
and more, and painted at times with three cat-tail hairs, these multifaceted
scenes of otherworldly deities are produced with hauntingly powerful detail.
Depictions of White Tara, Green Tara, the Medicine Buddha, and many other
celestials invite and inspire meditation and reflection.
