Illuminated Iconographic Tibetan Calligraphy: Transformation
This piece shows three rare blue lotus flowers representing the past, present and future and 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 and high above the water surface, un-splashed by the (Samsaric) bustle of pond life.
