DESCRIPTION

What happens to us when we die? A powerful series of paintings vividly portrays one man’s descent into the Tibetan Buddhist circles of hell.
Take a guided tour of the underworld with the Buddha of Hell as guide. Drawing on both Tibetan tradition and the art of graphic novels, Pema Namdol Thaye’s vivid paintings portray a harrowing descent into the realms of hell. Scenes of suffering encourage us to contemplate the karmic consequences of negative actions.
