Creation by Mukti Singh Thapa


This magnificent artwork by master artist Mukti Singh Thapa is Creation. This erotic painting depicts creation in an auspicious Nepalese scene. There are numerous Shivalinga, representing the great god Shiva, throughout the painting. The central structure is a palace, while a temple to Shiva is on the left, and the sacred animals on the right form the side of a torana, or gateway. This delightful piece displays Thapa's mastery of the 13th - 16th century Newar Design style through its precise lines and use of traditional iconography, while creatively introducing the central theme of creation.

This original thangka, or paubha in Nepal, is painted in the traditional manner with ground mineral pigments on primed cotton canvas. The green trees are painted with malachite while the gold ornaments in the central scene are painted painstakingly with 24 carat gold. A painting of this smaller size will take many weeks to compose, sketch and complete.
