    Rainbow Meditation

    Rainbow Meditation

    The Tibetan word for the hues of a rainbow is ‘ja’ འཇའ་ – a nicely balanced looking word, which is playfully composed in rainbow coloured Uchen script.

    There is a particular stylisation of how rainbows are depicted in traditional Thangka painting. These don’t necessarily follow natures order of rainbow colours, but do give a vibrant translucent quality; which shimmer with a typical wiggly line that runs down the centre of each rainbow like beam.

    As the small calligraphy on the piece refers – We are taught, as any meditation practice involving a deity or mandala; that the visualisation is not to be as anything solid, but translucent just like the vivid colours of a rainbow, which are impossible to catch hold of.

    Created as one of the Little Gem series of small and often illuminated artworks.

    Issued with this artwork is a Certificate of Authentication with description, which serves as provenance, as well as a recipe of value for insurance purposes.
