> DESCRIPTION

These small paintings are made anonymously in india by practitioners of Tantra, some of whom are artists, to signify and stimulate specific mental and /or spiritual experiences. While they are traditional images that have evolved over centuries with highly conventionalized forms and colors, they exude such a high level of intentionality that they continually appear fresh and alive. Despite their didactic function, they also have a history of being coveted as decorative objects and abstract art.
