More about White Tara Thangka Art
Thangka painting depicts Buddhist deity White Tara, who is the "mother of liberation" and represents the virtues of success in achievements. Tibetans pray to White Tara especially for health, healing and longevity. She offers healing to one's wounds, whether it's one's mind, body or spirit.
Tibetans usually think of Tara as having 21 manifestations, as she does in the common Tibetan Buddhist prayer — In Praise of the 21 Taras. In each form she takes a different colour — such as Blue and Black — and offers a different energy or virtue to help one on one's spiritual path. Of these 21 Taras, the two most venerated are White Tara and Green Tara.
In comparison to Green Tara, who is shown seated with one leg on the ground, ready to come to one's defense, White Tara is seated in the more meditative diamond lotus position, with both legs folded under her. She is represented with seven eyes - with an eye in her forehead, and one on each hand & foot - symbolizing her compassionate vigilance to see human afflictions. Her left hand is in the protective mudra and her right hand is in the wish-granting mudra. In her left hand she holds a stem of the Utpala lotus, symbol of purity.
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.
