Congratulations on your sale, Leslie! Gorgeous work, well done!!!

Congratulations. Joni

congrats on your sale

Thanks! I hope the image will bring joy to the person who's chosen it.

Another super work

Yes, David, all stitched. But not all embroidered. The facial features, fingernails, and jewels are embroidered with thread. Other elements are assembled of various pieces of silk, outlined with silk-wrapped horsehair cords, and stitched together by hand. It's a kind of mosaic of silk. I don't know how much patience I have, but I always say that doing something you love doesn't require patience! All the best to you, Leslie

This is awesome! You do incredible work. This is all stitched? Like embroidered? Very nice. You have way more patience than I do.

Avalokiteshvara in the form of Padmapani is often seen in thangkas of Buddha Shakyamuni, flanking the Buddha�s throne opposite another boddhisattva, either Manjushri or Vajrapani. This figure is also often depicted in sculptures. Rarely is it seen alone in a thangka like this one. Padmapani means lotus-in-hand, and his left hand holds the stalk of the lotus. The right hand, opening outward, is lowered in a gesture of granting favors, which also indicates his readiness to help. D...
