1000 Arm Lokiteshvara
- Unit Price
A thangka is a Tibetan painting that is traditionally used as a support for one’s meditation practice. The imagery depicted in Tibetan paintings provides a guide for the elaborate visualisations that one does in Tibetan Buddhist practice. In Tibetan homes and monasteries, thangkas are considered sacred objects and are often placed above shrines.
Avalokiteshvara means the Lord who looks down toward the entire realm with compassion. Lokeshwor is variably depicted, described and portrayed differently in different cultures and countries as either a male or a female Buddhist deity.
He can be represented with a small red Buddha in the sky above him, to remind us that he belongs to the lotus family of Amitabha. As you can see each of Chenrezig attributes has a clear and defined purpose. As our knowledge of the symbolism hidden in this Chenrezig Thangka increases we will learn more and more of the deep compassion and the happiness that is associated to Chenrezig.
This is a very high quality Thangka painting from The Himalayas purely made by hand with natural stone color and pure gold.
Silk Brocade is the most popular form of mounting since it is seen as having greater religious merit than other less expensive types of cloth. Framing the paintings is the traditional way to represent it.
All of our brocading work is performed by a specialised tailor with many years of brocading experience. We guarantee that your frame will look stunning and the work is usually completed within one to two business days (very large Thangkas may take a bit longer).
