Kurukula Dakini by Mukti Singh Thapa

This lovely painting by master artist Mukti Singh Thapa is of Kurukula Dakini. Mukti painted this work in the late 1980s or early 90s. It is not dated or signed, as is the custom when painting religious works. This is because the practitioner is worshipping the diety and the artist's signature is a distraction from that focus.  

As with all of the artist's work, it is painted in the traditional manner with mineral pigments on primed cotton canvas. The red body is painted with cinnabar and the blue background is lapis lazuli, while the jewelry is painted painstakingly with 24-carat gold.

The original thangka, or paubha in Nepal, painting, is available for the curious collector. If you are interested in this original artwork, please email Mahakala@MahakalaFineArts.com and we will share the price as well as more information about this unique piece.
