Ugyen Choephell, Bristol artist (thangka painter) and musician has set up an exhibition in London to commemorate the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to the UK
'Tibet in London - journey to the forbidden land' is an exploration into the Art of contemplation.
18 - 24 June 2012, SMA Centre, Kensington, W8 4HN
The exhibition recreates the West Gate Stupa to Lhasa, which stands before the Potala palace - one personal aim is to invite His Holiness the Dalai Lama to visit; a symbolic return to Tibet - but also to give everyone a taste of tibet, a sense of pilgrimage and a journey all can make.
You might also like to join in the prayer flag messages exhibit - you can create a flag which will join the exhibition - but you can also create a virtual flag online right now
We hope to take the flags to fly in Tibet later.
Should this project inspire you, Ugyen is looking for sponsors to help the stupa take shape, sponsor a mani wheel or prayer flag strings for the dharchen installation. Your support will make a huge difference to help bring this exhibition to life, full details can be found here
Please feel free to forward this onto anyone you know who might be interested
