This antique Tibetan meditation rug is a true gem! Checkerboard is an old style in Tibet and this red and blue design is very unique. Outside the checkerboard is a blue and white pearl border, surrounded by a meander border. The outermost red border is filled with flowers and scholarly emblems. This handmade rug was likely woven in Shigatse, Tibet over 100 years ago.
This piece could be displayed on the wall as a cultural treasure or used for your own personal meditation.
Age: Late 19th - early 20th century

This work by celebrated artist Lok Chitrakar is of Akshobhaya, who is often called the Immovable Buddha because he is immovable in his vow to never feel anger or disgust toward another being. This beautiful paubha, or thangka, is one in a series of the Five Dhyani, or Wisdom, Buddhas. The Five Dhanyi Buddhas each represent a different aspect of enlightened consciousness to aid in spiritual transformation. This stunning piece displays Chitrakar’s mastery of the 13th-16th century Newar Design style through its precise lines and use of traditional iconography.

This elegant bracelet is handmade with the highest grade red Italian coral, often called 'precious coral,' from the island of Sardinia. Coral has been valued for centuries and has been worn for protection from harm and increasing energy, inner peace and strength.
You can choose whether you want 100% coral, or would like to have two old Tibetan turquoise stones adorn the adjustable closure. Both bracelets are simple, allowing the beauty of the intensely red coral to shine brightly.
A flash of red will add color to any outfit and may provide a burst of energy!
