Description

Lokeshvara also known as Avalokiteshvara or Chengrezig is the embodiment of boundless loving-kindness and compassion. It is said that Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara made strong vows in front of Buddha Amitabha to intentionally manifest into the three realms of the world in order to liberate all sentient beings from their sufferings.

This Captivating Thangka of Halahal Lokeshvara is painted in the style of the great Nevari Legacy of Paubha painting. The use of Beautiful rich colors attracts one's attention and demands the viewer's time and patience. The beautiful green face is a profusion of Maitri and Karuna(compassion).

This Graceful Depiction of Lokeshshwora was painted by a veteran artist BalaramNhisutu .Mr.Balaram first started painting in 1993 A.D. Although he learned the techniques of thangka painting from many senior artists, his main mentor was Mr.Ram Sundar Khyaju. He is a native of Bhaktapur and derives his inspiration from the open museum city he lives in.

As we know teachings and artwork connected with Buddhism, first entered Tibet from China and Nepal in the 7th century, most probably through the marriages of King SongstenGampo to a Chinese Princess and a Nepalese Princess. The mutation, exchange, and inspiration of the art forms found in these three cultures took place over centuries and as a result, many forms of art styles developed.

One of the most beautiful paintings in our collection is the result of this legacy. This great artistic work has a strong influence from Newari and Indic-Chinese conventions. The use of Dragon Motifs, intricate workmanship, and elegant facial features is a perfect blend that has been so delicately balanced to the point that the viewer is encapsulated by the feeling of peace and serenity at once.

This original hand-painted paubha was completed in early 2008 . It has a wonderful shine that calms one's mind as soon as one lays their eye upon it. One cannot help but be completely immersed in the sheer beauty of pictorial and emotive expressions.

When we closely observe we discover that the artist uses Five Major colors – namely White, Blue, Yellow, Red, and Green. These are the colors symbolizing the five TathagataBuddhas. The use of the Color Green is especially dominant giving the feeling of balance and refreshment to the viewer. The perfect balance of the mix of five major colors brings about harmony among the various elements of the painting.

This lovely painting is a rare find and could be a great delight to earn merits for a practitioner and a collector alike.

Masterfully executed in rich, vibrant colors with illuminating detail; The silk brocade frame compliments the painting beautifully and forms a focal point in our praying/meditation room I receive the piece earlier than expected in good shape; and prior to purchase, Rajendra was responding quickly and very helpful in providing high resolution picture for my further evaluation. Thank you Rajendra and surely I will be back again.
