Meditation mandala's are imported from Nepal where they are produced in monastery art schools. They can serve as a reminder of the deeper things in life, or as a tool for meditation, they also look great on the wall.
Each piece is individually produced and are each unique - in colour, design, scale and execution. These paintings are produced in the traditional way - using vegetable dye, a yak hair brush and painted on cotton canvas. They can take 5 - 6 weeks to create.
The sale of Meditation mandala's benefits the monastery community and a family in Kathmandu.
Tibetan Shawls are created by Tibetan Women living and working in Nepal. The community of women come together in small workrooms, where they sit on the floor with other women and a hand made loom and they work intuitively - producing a very soft, warm, shawl with extremely diverse colours. Created by the Tibetan Women's Cooperative. No two of these shawls is the same and the colours that are used are surprising and always work well together.
