The White Tara embroidered thangka’s main design is based on a work by Tibetan thangka painting master Migmar Tsering. I mainly used the Handbook of Tibetan Buddhist Symbols by Robert Beer for the details and meanings.
More details and close-ups:
I am not Tibetan, nor am I a practicing Buddhist, but I read texts on Buddhist philosophy and way of life.
I wonder what unfinished project will be completed next. ^_^
