More About this Item


Description:

A beautiful thangka portraying the Transcendent Buddha Amitāyus (Tshe-dpag-med Iha-dgu). Here he shows his typical reddish complexion and he holds the kalaśa on his lap. He wears a green dothi, bracelets, precious necklaces, big round earrings and a five-pointed crown. It is of note that the painting focuses on tones of pale red and grass green, and it also depicts wonderful peonies. The Buddha sits in a delicate landscape with mountains and freshwater streams, and he is surrounded by six other characters. The Dharmapāla Hayagrīva (Rta-mgrin) appears on the lower part of the thangka, while the Transcendent Buddha Amitābha (Ḥod-dpag-med) is depicted on the upper part.
