Om Ye Dharma
The syllables ye dharmā illuminated here in gold leafed Uchen script. This in essence is a summary of Dharma, which is also named the Dependent Origination dharani – mantra of Pratītyasamutpādahṛdaya – རྟེན་འབྲེལ་སྙིང་པོ་
Representing an auspicious beginning to the mantra is the syllable oṃ in Lantsa Sanskrit, created in gesso and palladium leafed and surrounded by a halo of mica ink.
The surrounding background is a typical Tibetan swirling leaf pattern found decorating Mandalas and Icons in general.
Created as one of the Little Gem series of small and often illuminated artworks.
