Overview

Boldly reinterpreting an age-old artistic style of painting, this beautiful edition of Celestial Gallery showcases intricately rendered Tibetan-style mandalas, reproduced from a precious collection of magnificent scroll paintings. Master painter Romio Shrestha and his team of artisan monks have rendered Nepalese contemporary versions of deities such as White Tara, the Medicine Buddha and Dakini mandala, and other traditional Buddhist iconography in powerful detail and vibrant colors.

The Buddha’s message, beautifully echoed in the visionary thangka paintings of Shrestha, speaks to the universal desire for a sense of love, completion, and connectedness with the world around us. Presented in new contexts unconstrained by religious and artistic convention, Celestial Gallery offers an opportunity for a fresh awakening to the spirit of the tradition as it pushes the boundaries in our world today.
