Over seven days the Festival of Tibet will offer an experience of divine art and inspiration.
Tibetan Art Exhibition by Karma Phuntsok
This stunning exhibition will feature cutting edge contemporary Tibetan art by master painter Karma Phuntsok. Although traditionally trained, Karma integrates a range of innovative techniques and materials into his work, creating unique and dynamic expressions of contemporary Tibetan Buddhist Art. Karma’s art is featured in collections around the world including the Queensland Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
SAND MANDALA by Lama Khedup
Throughout the Festival, Lama Khedup will create a stunningly beautiful sand mandala. Millions of grains of brightly coloured sand are placed with great skill and patience using a metal funnel called a chak phur to form intricate geometric designs.
Beautifully detailed and highly symbolic, the sand mandala can take many days to complete, with the process culminating in the spiritually charged dissolution ceremony on the final day – Sunday 25 January 12pm. Only in the last few decades has this ancient sacred art been brought out of the monasteries for all to witness.
