Vase of Treasure Relief Painted Wall Hanging
The eight auspicious symbols are found in all forms of Tibetan art, painted on walls, appliqu̩éd on brocade, carved and wood and sculpted in clay. They represent the essential elements of happiness, health, prosperity and joy and their causes - merit and wisdom.
This relief painted wall hanging in the form of a vase, features all the 8 symbols. At Norbulingka, artists have revived a traditional Tibetan method of relief painting called kyumbur, which is used to add texture to both thangka frescoes and household items. Paintings that utilize kyumbur seem to pop off their flat surfaces and come to life.
