Painter Romio Shrestha, a modern master of traditional Tibetan Buddhist enlightenment and deity art, is known for his complex and sacred designs, highlighted here in beautiful detail through these forty removable and frameable illustrations.
Romio Shrestha’s depictions of White Tara, Green Tara, the Medicine Buddha, and many other celestials invite meditation and reflection. The original artworks were made from natural ingredients like marigolds and hand-ground malachite and lapis, and were painted at times with just three hairs of a cat's tail. Each work of art took months to create and is reproduced here in hauntingly powerful detail.
