Tattered Prayers print

$18.00

Print of Tibetan prayer flags painted in traditional Tibetan colors: yellow, green, red, white and blue. Image is centered and printed on 8.5″ x 11″ paper, easily trimmed to 8×10 for easy framing.

This painting comes from a memory from a trip. I remember seeing a building in deep shade in the background to the left and it has tree trunks and branches all around it that had all of these beautifully tattered prayer flags tied up all criss crossing each other. They gently swayed in the breeze and it was so incredibly peaceful and mesmerizing to watch. I didn’t want to leave.

Description

Tibetan Prayer Flags have a mesmerizing affect on me. Any prayer flags really. But these are the traditional Tibetan prayer flag colors. The colors and their meanings are as follows as from prayerflags.com

The prayer flag tradition is ancient, dating back thousands of years in India and to the shamanistic Bon tradition of pre-Buddhist Tibet. Bonpo priests used solid colored cloth flags, perhaps with their magical symbols, to balance the elements both internally and externally. The 5 colors of prayer flags represent the 5 basic elements: yellow-earth, green–water, red-fire, white-air, blue-space. Balancing these elements externally brings harmony to the environment. Balancing the elements internally brings health to the body and the mind.

I took photos a year and a half ago on a trip where I saw all these flags hanging and thought they were so beautiful. At the time, I didn’t know the exact way the prayer flags were used but now that I know, they are even more beautiful to me. The older I get the more spiritual I become, I guess wisdom does come with age.

Recently, I took this painting to an art show and an elderly Chinese woman stopped and looked at this painting for a long time. A younger Chinese woman was with her. They conversed a little with one another in Chinese and the younger woman turned to me and said “My mother is an artist. She said this is your best painting because it shows movement”. I took that as a compliment.
