Thangkas are Himalayan paintings that depict various Buddhist deities as described in the canonical texts. This beautiful Thangka painting features Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha. It has been painted in Nepal by an experienced artist and mounted on brocade. The colours are vibrant with great attention to detail shown in the work. 

Shakyamuni Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama, is the central figure in Buddhism. Born a prince in 6th century BCE Nepal, his sheltered life shielded him from suffering. However, a chance encounter with illness, old age, and death sparked a deep search for understanding. He renounced his princely life and embarked on a spiritual journey, eventually attaining enlightenment under a bodhi tree.

Through his teachings, he outlined the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path, offering a path to liberation from suffering. Revered for his wisdom and compassion, Shakyamuni Buddha's legacy continues to inspire millions across the globe.

A thangka like this is considered a most auspicious gift to give to someone to mark a significant milestone (wedding, new venture, new home, etc).
