"Awaken the divine within and in each single person you meet in your life," reads the quote on the back of this GIANT 25" high x 18" wide book. This is a gorgeous collection of thankas by this self-taught master of the form, Nepalese artist Romio Shrestha, whom some say is the seventeenth reincarnation of the famed Tibetan thanka painter Arniko. He dedicates his stunning paintings to the worlds within and without; each brush stroke elicits an actual prayer; this is his work, his gift, and it comes through him. Just a tiny bit of creasing to the top and bottom of the spine. Decorated endpapers. Heavy and large book. Ever-so-lightly bowed due to weight of book, which is nearly 7 lbs. Extra shipping charges may apply.
