$595
Gautama Buddha, or Siddharta Gautama, is the founder of Buddhism. His narrative follows him leaving his kingdom after knowing about suffering, leading him to the pursuit of enlightenment. He also began preaching his views as he traveled where he gained the sangha or a community of monks. The members of the sangha then carried mandalas with them to help them teach about living life to reach enlightenment. This thangka is packed with figures and symbols, fitting for the inspiring life and journey of the first Buddha. The Buddha can be seen at the very center, the starting point, and the beginning of contemplation. From that circle, a series of lines and patterns branch out, pervading the rest of the thangka, which represents the cycle of life.

This thangka is packed with a lot of figures, colors, and symbols. Some of them include lotus flowers all over. These flowers are often seen in a symmetric pattern symbolizing balance and purity. The Buddha also sits on a pink lotus, a color of the flower reserved for the highest of deities in Buddhism. The scenes from the central circle are also depicted it the medium and smaller circles all over the thangka. Golden rays can also be seen emanating from the circular sections, representing the universe and the energy and light brought by enlightenment. Look closely at each golden ring and the design is filled with auspicious elements within a large square (the gates) in which the gods dwell. Also within the thangka are masters and Yogis. Deities like Amitabha or the Buddha of Limitless Life and light as well as the white Tara also appear in the thangka.
