Thangka Painting (Lotus) – Online Workshop
June 18 | 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Thangka Painting (Lotus) – Online Workshop with Krishna Tashi Palmo
Thangka paintings are rich in meaning and usually depicts a Buddhist deity, scene, or mandala. Traditionally, Thangka is designed to tell the life of Buddha, as well as other influential Lamas and deities. Thangka artists believe that painting Thangkas aid in the spiritual path to enlightenment, as this religious art is used as a meditation tool.
As part of the 8 lucky signs that are of importance in a Thangka painting, we will be doing 1 sign which is the Thangka lotus. The 8 lucky signs are found often in Buddhist monasteries and in many homes. We will be doing one of them which is ‘The Thangka lotus’ that signifies spiritual purity. Krishna will also take us into the world of Thangka with stories, as we indulge in painting it.
