The Snow Lion Wool Silk Shawl 135
This design is based around ancient Tibetan thangkas. It features a playful Snow Lion as the central character, the emblem of Tibet, representing it’s snowy mountain ranges, power, strength, fearlessness and joy. The mythical Snow Lion is wearing traditional Tibetan armour and headwear, decorated in the national stones of coral and turquoise. A strip of patterned fabric coils around the creature, and an ornate crown crests the design. Beneath the Snow Lion rests a stylised platform representing lotus petals, holding a Tibetan tea set and carved bone prayer beads. The milk from the Snow Lion’s bulbous paws is reputed to contain healing powers. An arc of flames frames the centre of the design, a technique often used in ancient Buddhist art to show that something is sacred. The background of this design contains a snowy Tibetan landscape, flaming temples and bone trumpets. The Tibetan script within the design reads ‘tashi delek’, an auspicious greeting meaning ‘good luck and good health’.
