Silk Thangka Website Offers Sacred Art Prints Online
The Threads of Awakening website has been redesigned to focus on the qualities Tibetan sacred artwork seeks to represent and inspire.
The "Portfolio" has been renamed "Artwork." And the thangkas have been grouped into categories by subject and specialty. The "specialties" of these divine images are the personal qualities we all want to cultivate.
There's "Boundless Love & Compassion" with silk thangkas of the Lord of Love, Chenrezig, and protective Mother Tara.
Manjushri, embodiment of enlightened wisdom, sits with Saraswati, goddess of learning, poetry, music, and art in the "Wisdom, Learning & Discernment" category.
"Health and Longevity" is sure to be a popular category, carrying the healing energy of lapis blue Medicine Buddha alongside the peaceful life-giving gaze of White Tara.
There's also an important group of thangkas representing power, protection and the overcoming of obstacles.
Finally, there's a page just for thangkas of Buddha Shakyamuni and another for the Taras.
Even Lotus Flowers and Himalayan Portraits each have dedicated spaces.
In addition, fine art (giclee) prints are now easy to order directly from each artwork's sidebar.
Up to now, prints of Leslie Rinchen-Wongmo's fabric thangkas had only been available through FineArtAmerica.com a print-on-demand art reproduction company.
While the print quality was superb, the buying process was cumbersome. An endless array of choices so many varieties of paper and canvas left inexperienced potential buyers dismayed.
