The Wind Horse Silk Twill Shawl 135
This design is based around ancient Tibetan thangkas and prayer flags. It features a galloping horse, representing the mythical Wind Horse from Tibetan mythology. The horse wears a traditional saddle with a Tibetan tiger rug as the saddle cloth, and dzi beads decorating the trappings. Detailed stirrups line the top and bottom of the design, each holding a small Ga’u box with a charm hidden inside for prosperity. On the horse’s back rides a small mongoose vomiting jewels, a sign of good luck, alongside the flaming, wish-fulfilling jewel, bringing peace, wealth and harmony. In each corner of the scarf are small carved charms representing the four animals of the cardinal directions, the garuda, the dragon, the tiger and the snow lion. Beneath the horse is a stylised representation of a bed of lotus petals, as often found in traditional thangkas. The prayer flags (also known as a wind horse) which arc around the design are another symbol of good fortune. The Tibetan script within the design reads ‘tashi delek’, an auspicious greeting meaning ‘good luck and good health’.
