Tibetan Wave, 24"x24" oil and 22k gold on textured wood bas-relief.
what does the symbols tell?, awesome work!, cheers!
Om Mani Padme Hum (Tibetan sanskrit meaning The Jewel in the Lotus). It's to remind us that like the human experiences of life the lotus can grow out of the slime and muck and still can blossom into a beautiful flower with a golden crown in it's center. We can all come from a rough past or upbringing but we all still hold that jewel that can blossom in side us.
You are a great artist, thanks to do that!
Is it possible to buy this piece? I live in the Philippines.
Sorry this one Sold. Thank you for your interest though.
Do you have other works of a similar style?
I have one wave left. You can see on you website www.troycarney.com what is left. When you click on a painting you will see the title and info below. If it has a black dot like this • at the end, it means it's sold. There is only one large wave left called Nalu Kai. I'm just starting a new piece that will be a Gold Wave painting for the 2011 Triple Crown Surf Contest on Oahu here in Hawaii. I will hopefully have it up here to view by the 4th of march.
Beautiful technique you've developed there. I really like the Cloud Break piece. How much is Nalu Kai (I'm from the Philippines, but don't factor in the shipping costs just yet)?
Beautiful and amazing. Definitely something different.
this is a very interesting concept. i would not have thought of combining tibet and an ocean since... tibet is nowhere near an ocean... but it fits really well together. i like it! (:
Thanks Kilocopter. Yeah your right, no waves in the Tibet. That's what make's this piece weirdly different. They find Conch Shells in the Himalayan Mountains that the Tibetan monks use and the finest Sea Salt in the world from when the Himalayas when it was all an ancient sea bed. If there was an ocean with mountains popping out......there was waves. But that's not what this piece is about. This one in breaking right now in my brain
