Linga and Yoni by Mukti Singh Thapa


This fascinating painting by master artist Mukti Singh Thapa depicts the Linga and Yoni, the energy of the universe. The yoni is the creative power of nature and represents the goddess Durga. The male counterpart of the yoni is the linga, the representation of the god Shiva. Their union represents the eternal process of creation and regeneration. This piece displays Thapa's mastery of the 13th - 16th century Newar Design style through its precise lines and expert use of traditional iconography, while also demonstrating his brilliant creativity in this original design.

This original thangka, or paubha in Nepal, is painted in the traditional manner with ground mineral pigments on primed cotton canvas. The rich blue is lapis lazuli and the deep red is cinnabar. The gold ornaments, such as the jewelry, are painted painstakingly with 24 carat gold. A painting of this smaller size will take a couple months to compose, sketch and complete.

While the original painting has sold, Mahakala Fine Arts has produced a Collector's Edition fine art print so that you can collect this museum quality work of art. This piece is limited to 100 prints and can only be found at Mahakala Fine Arts. It is printed on thick archival paper in the same professional quality used by top museums worldwide.
