About the Artwork +

A painting about the God of Compassion, Awalokiteshvara. Also known as 'Chen Re Zik' or literally translated as- the one who sees everyone equally. A Boddhisatva who refused to accept moksha (nirvana) as he took a vow that until every human being could achieve moksha (nirvana), he would stay in this world as the god of compassion.

About the artist : “Thangka art demands discipline and perseverance to master- I take pride in being one of the few women Thangka artists. I am proud of our Thangka heritage and culture and my everlasting hope is that with my work I can create an identity for myself and more importantly make people see beyond the boundaries of male vs female artists and just fall in love with our art for what it is, magical and beautiful” An ever-present smile that belies her physical challenges (polio in both legs), Krishna Tashi Palmo is one of Meraki’s most inspiring artists. She learnt at the Tibetan traditional art school from 2006 to 2012 in Himachal Pradesh’s Lahual Sipiti district. Her dream of being an artist since she was a child pushed her to learn Thangka art despite being told that women cannot practice Thangka art in her class of 350 students which had only 4 aspiring female artists.  Such is her love for art that she also takes out time to teach children at the local NGO in her town.

Thangka-art

Thangka paintings are closely connected to Buddhism based on Buddha's life and this teachings- every Thangka painting can be linked to the Buddha's thoughts and teachings. It literally means a painting that can be rolled up. Thangka's are meditative tools that personify and represent the qualities of the Gods and Goddesses painted in the Thangka. These paintings are made on cotton or silk canvases and use natural colours and also use Precious metals like Gold, Silver and Turquoise for these colours and every painting takes months to make.
