Manjushri Thangka art- The prince of wisdom
- Unit Price
Manjushri is a bodhisattva or Buddha-aspect who represents wisdom.
Usually Manjushri is depicted as a young approximately 16 years old Indian prince, because his wisdom is not just some learned knowledge, but the highest intuitive wisdom. He is sitting on the lotus flower holding aloft a sword in his right hand, symbolising how he is cutting off the darkness of ignorance, duality and limited worldly knowledge of beings. In the left hand Manjushri holds a book of wisdom. This book is Prajña Pāramitā sutra, the sutra of Ultimate (Intuitive) Wisdom, which represents his realization of the ultimate transcendental truth. He can be depicted with a lily in hand, symbolizing renouncing and cessation of disturbing emotions or with jnana mudra.
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).
