Product Description

Awaken your inner Buddha with these stunning posters selected from the acclaimed Buddhas of the Celestial Gallery.

Each complex piece of art featured in Buddhas of the Celestial Gallery was painted with hand-ground natural mineral pigments, sometimes brushed onto canvas with as few as three hairs of a cat’s tail. These paintings take months to create and can stand well over six feet tall and six feet wide once complete.

Steeped in rich spiritual significance, traditional thangka paintings portray the celestial sphere through geometric mandalas and Buddhist symbolism. Each of the posters in this collection invites viewers to meditate on Buddha’s message of love, peace, and enlightenment.

The large-size and full-color printing of these posters allows for a meditative appreciation of the incredible detail and thought put into each piece, and the removable pages make it easier than ever to display these beautiful paintings throughout the home and office.
