Let’s Explore Himalayan Art – Antique Wooden Sutra Cover

Sometimes a video just does the job better!

Sutra covers are usually highly decorated and very beautiful.

Because it is through the creation of art – on walls, in architecture, in thangkas, in woodwork – that monks express their devotion.

But the presence of the five deities makes this an exceptional artwork.

Large and exquisitely carved, this is comparable to an example found int he Brooklyn museum.

Any more examples? Any more insights? Please comment…
