Thangka Depicting Tibetan Medicinal Herbs
Painted in Nepal using the traditional Tibetan style of painting using ground mineral pigment on cotton or silk, these beautiful Thangkas function as one of the principle meditational tools in Buddhist practice. They usually depict a central Buddhist deity or teacher surrounded by associated gods and lineage figures, describes events or myths attributed to important religious teachers, or outlines the blueprint of a particular deity’s realm as a mandala.
This tangka is a colourful and bright hand painting featuring Bhaisajyaguru, the master of remedies, sitting cross legged and surrounded by different herbs used by traditional Tibetan medicine.
