Born of Bindu
This piece especially created for the 2016 Seventh edition of the Sharjah Calligraphy Biennial in the United Arab Emirates – on the theme of ‘dot’.
The main feature of this piece is a white ‘bindu’ shape, which represents the essence life force tigli in Tibetan. A play of white on black, the birth of a ‘dot’ from the black space of emptiness.
The calligraphy encircling the bindu is an elaboration on tig meaning drop and the use of this term within a famous Dzogchen ‘terma’ manuscript called mkha’ ‘gro snying thig.
