Illuminated Iconographic Tibetan Calligraphy“Transformation"
This piece shows three rare blue lotus flowers representing the ‘past, present and future’ the passing of time.
This illuminated calligraphy translates as ‘Transformation’, the
script style is called Dru tsha; a cursive script traditionally used for
free style Tibetan calligraphy.
‘Transformation’ is made up of two words in Tibetan, the first word sprul meaning emanate, incarnate, manifest. The second bsgyur meaning change, transform.
The particular technique used here is brushed in a resist leaving the natural colour of the paper.
In Eastern iconography, the lotus flower is often symbolic of purity
and is considered an example of transformation, feeding from the
composting mud at the bottom of a lake or pond, transforming into the
most pure and glorious of flowers, standing proud high above the water
surface, un-splashed by the (Samsaric) bustle of pond life.
