Today we spent a very inspiring day at the museum visiting the Met’s Cosmic Buddhas in the Himalayas. It is a celebration of the tantric pantheon of Buddhist gods and goddesses, all depicted in beautiful colors and forms. These peaceful compositions with their vivid palette were profoundly inspirational and meditative.
Tantric Buddhism started as a movement in eastern India and is characterized by the usage of mantras and yoga to evoke experiences that enable the realization of enlightenment.
The simple message of inner peace is responsible for the appeal of the Buddhist art and what keeps on inspiring us in the creation of our jewelry.
