For thirty years, Wisdom has been honored to offer Tibetan Art Calendars, and we were heartbroken to announce that the 2014 calendar was the final one. Our German partners, from whom we license the calendars, are no longer able to commit to the demands of production, and therefore there will not be a 2015 calendar.
The antique scroll-art masterpieces seen in Wisdom’s Tibetan Art Calendar 2014 are called thangkas. While the thangka is common to Tibetan Buddhists, its finest examples are highly sought-after in the international art community and have become hot properties in the same vein as Oriental rugs and ceramics. As a result, the best of these works are seldom, if ever, available for public viewing.
This is why Wisdom’s Tibetan Art Calendar is so special. It's an affordable way to enjoy incredibly rare and meaningful works of sacred art, year-round. These thirteen sacred paintings by Tibet’s master painters represent a variety of classical images, mandalas, deities, and icons. Each poster-sized picture is produced to the highest German printing standards, and is suitable for framing. Complete with in-depth explanations of their cultural and philosophical significance, these exquisite fine art reproductions will be treasured for years to come.
Images included in the 2014 calendar are:
- The Paradise of Buddha Amitabha
- The Paradise of the Medicine Buddha
- Avalokiteshvara in the Tradition of the Nun Lakshmi
- Padmasambhava as Dorje Drölö
- King Ralpachen
- Yamantaka Yangdok Meiputri
- The Twenty-One Taras
- Mandala of the Vajrabhairava with Thirteen Deities
- Mahakali and Mahakala Face to Face
- Manjushri Namasangitiv
- Buddha Shakyamuni in the Mahabodhi Temple
- The Miracles of Buddha
