The art of Nepal is dominated by the thangka. An age-old style of painting done on the finest of fabrics, it is a most demanding skill in terms of complexity of technique and the years required to master the same. The one you see on this page is a contemporary example of this superfine art, handpicked for the way it conforms to the venerable painting tradition of Nepal. It is brocadeless, which makes for a compact work of art that would infuse your space with gravity and devotion.

It is a depiction of Lord Shiva after the Tibetan Buddhist style. He is in the midst of His destructive tandava, His pristine yogic musculature exposed to view but for the tigerskin loincloth He wears. A venomous snake slides down His torso and raises its hood. His jata (dreadlocks) are held in place by the typical five-spire crown of Tibetan Buddhist iconography, matched by the characteristic facial features and kundalas. A wide halo burns bright behind His head. Further behind it lies a flaming aureole befitting His divine presence. He dances on the soft bed of a lotus, its petals curling up from the force of His motions. The setting serves to tone down the powerful influence of the tandava. A gently flowing stream in the foreground; sublime verdure and azure; and the soothing - almost feminine - strokes of the brush that define the clouds.
