More about Mahakala Thangka Art
Thangka painting depicts Mahakala, a wrathful Buddhist deity, who is considered to be the fierce and powerful emanation of Avalokitesvara and Chakrasamvara. This guardian deity defends Dharma from corruption & degeneration. He guides and protects one from all kinds of deception & delusion, and bestows the power to overcome life struggles.
Mahakala is considered one of the most important Dharmapalas, protectors of Dharma, also known as Universal Laws. Decorating his crown, are the five skulls, symbols of the transmutation of the five 'kleshas', negative emotions, into the five wisdoms. His face is meant to frighten bad spirits away and keep away negative energies, thoughts and actions.
Mahakala is also worshiped by Hindus as the ultimate manifestation of Lord Shiva and his consort MahaKali, representing the enormous power of Brahman.
More about Lama painted Art
Lama is a title officially extended only to the few dozen Tibetan Buddhist monks who have achieved the highest level of spiritual development. Lamas are considered to be the highest quality Thangka painters and create art exclusively with 24 Carat Gold and Sterling Silver.
Before being "released to the world" these paintings are prayed upon by a Lama and the whole temple, bestowing them with blessings and positive energy. Some people believe that a painting made by a Lama can bring good fortune because Lama puts a part of his energy in the painting.
More about Newa Art
Newari artists are renowned throughout Asia for the high quality of their workmanship. In certain periods, their style had tremendous influence on the art of Tibet and China. The combination of Tibetan art made in the traditional Newari way has been acknowledged to create beautiful and intriguing masterpieces.
Newari paintings are commonly kept in museums and private collections in the West and Asia. There are only a handful of genuine painters left, who can draw in this way, as it requires perfecting both Tibetan painting technique and Newari painting style. Hence, Newari style paintings are rarely reproduced nowadays and have near enough become extinct.
