More about Shiva and Parvati Thangka Painting

Thangka painting depicts Hindu deities Shiva and Parvati (aka Shiva and Shakti). Shiva is the great yogi. He symbolizes male energy and it is the primordial energy, which represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe in Hinduism. Shakti on the other hand represents the female energy and is the personification of the creative and sustaining energy.

This painting symbolizes that despite the gender we associate ourselves with, we actually encompass both male and female qualities. When we fail to acknowledge our vast energetic system as a whole, we may feel chronically out of balance. One of the goals of yoga is to bridge the gap between the masculine and feminine and reach the central channel that provides us a clear and joyful mind for meditation and self-realization.


More about Newa Art

Newari artists are renowned throughout Asia for the high quality of their workmanship. In certain periods, their style had tremendous influence on the art of Tibet and China. The combination of Tibetan art made in the traditional Newari way has been acknowledged to create beautiful and intriguing masterpieces.


Newari paintings are commonly kept in museums and private collections in the West and Asia. There are only a handful of genuine painters left, who can draw in this way, as it requires perfecting both Tibetan painting technique and Newari painting style. Hence, Newari style paintings are rarely reproduced nowadays and have near enough become extinct.
