Good condition

This painting comes from a workshop of Nepalese artists located in Bhaktapur.
Very finely painted, it represents the wheel of life.

The wheel of life, also known as karmic existence or bhavacakra, is a figurative representation of samsara in Buddhism.
In Buddhism, samsara is the cycle of successive existences which are subject to suffering, attachment and ignorance.
These states are conditional on karma.

This image is a Buddhist representation of existence. Held by a monster depicting Yama, it contains the different aspects of existence. Siddhartha Gautama, the first Buddha, would have portrayed it himself.

Golden lines bring real charm to this painting.

Measurements: height 38 cm x width 31 cm
