the sphere of vision - the art of thangka midwifery in Vajrayana


"The parents of a thangka are always emptiness and form – wisdom and method. So the thangka painter is a visionary midwife. The mother of vision is creative space, so the thangka painter must be aligned with space and the thangka painted from the perspective of space rather than according to limited personal ideas. So I am a visionary midwife rather than an artist."

Publicity : Moving Being

We have created some publicity materials for Khandro Déchen's book 'Moving Being'.  We have a poster, postcard and business card design.  Although these have been created particularly for people who are looking to publicise 'Moving Being', anyone who would like a poster of the front cover is also welcome to order one.

The book itself is available on Lulu

Ögyen Dzambhala : "Today's Best" Award

We've just received an email from Zazzle (where we have our Tantric Art Shop) to say that the Ögyen Dzambhala image has been selected as one of "Today's Best".  They say:

"Congratulations


Your product, Ögyen Dzambhala [card], has been selected as one of Today's Best on Zazzle!


This means it will appear on the Zazzle homepage for the rest of today and it will also be added to the Today's Best Awards Showcase. Keep up the great work!"

We're very happy that Ngakma Pema Zangmo's work has been recognised in this way.

Tantric Art


We are pleased to announce the creation of an online shop selling tantric artwork.  At the moment we have a number of thangkas available for sale as posters.  We hope shortly to be able to offer these as postcards and greetings cards also.

The front door to the shop can be found on the Aro Books worldwide website, and if you follow the links from Tantric Arts you will eventually arrive at a page of thangka images . Clicking on any of these takes you through to the shop where they are available as cards and posters. You can also get there directly via the shop's own site at Zazzle.

Most of the images will print quite large. As part of the testing process we bought a 35" version of the Ögyen Dzambala Thangka which is quite magnificent.
