Item Description

 

This hand-carved, hand-pulled, Moku Hanga woodblock print of Padmasambhava was created by artist Faith Stone. 

Padmasambhava is also know as Guru Rinpoche and is revered in the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. Widely recognized as a great Buddhist teacher, he helped spread Buddhism in Tibet. Moku Hanga is a labor-intensive traditional Japanese woodblock technique. The woodblocks are hand carved, and hand rubbed using a barren onto fine mulberry paper.

Ms. Stone paints contemporary Buddhist and Hindu art. She finds the joy in painting Buddhas is creating the space and environment for the deity to reside. "The idea is that once the painting is completed, the deity moves in. The painting no longer belongs to the artist. It is the home of a Buddha." Ms. Stone is also author of Drawing Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. "I want everyone to paint Buddhas, it?s the best!"
