THE PRIMORDIAL RIGDEN
“Excellent Father of the Family of Awareness Holders”
Through 2004-05 the Artist worked on this painting beginning with many detail sketches to full composition drawings in graphite and brush & ink. The final composition was transferred to a prepared surface of silk cloth and painted with ground mineral and gouache pigments. 23kt gold was applied in certain areas. The painting was completed in April 2005 for the first Rigden Abhisheka given by The Sakyong at Shambhala Mountain Center in northern Colorado, USA.
These Fine Art prints come with a Print Edition Certificate and framing guide. A documentary film showing aspects of the painting’s development and a recently printed booklet describing the meaning of Primordial Rigden with the symbolism of the painting is available through Shambhala Shop.
