very good condition
dimension: 38 x 51 cm
This "master quality" hand painted Bhavachakra wheel of life mandala was made in Nepal in time of maoist revolution and selected by myself among the very best artists in the region of Baktapur (2006). The fine quality of this handwork can be seen in the perfect transitions of dark to lighter colours, for example in the hills or clouds details. The gold parts are painted with a pencil and liquefied gold. This is obtained by heating the gold with the resin of a holy tree.
There are three qualities available on the market: student, medium and master quality. It takes more than one month to realize this kind of exceptional quality. Since 2010 it is becoming difficult for the schools to find students willing to work so long with this precision. Students are mainly discouraged because it takes many years to reach this level of skills. So this kind of master work will become more and more exceptional with the time.
The Wheel of Life illustrates the essence of the Buddhist teachings, the Four Truths: the existence of earthly suffering, its origin and cause, the ending of misery and the practice path to liberation from suffering.
The Wheel of Life describes the cause of all evil and its effects, mirrored in earthly phenomena just as it is experienced by everyone from the cradle to the grave. Picture by picture it reminds us that everyone is always his or her own judge and responsible for their own fate, because, according to Karma, causes and their effects are the fruits of one's own deeds.
The appearance of the Buddha in the Six Worlds commemorates also the potential Nirvana, inherent in all beings, because all creatures, the proud gods as well as insatiable monsters, the warring Titans suffering men, as well as the tormented beings in hell and the animals, all have the possibility of attaining salvation in a future good rebirth in the World of Men.
