The Tucci expeditions and Tibetan Paintings

description
During his first voyages of exploration to the Indian Himalayas from 1926, Giuseppe Tucci encountered a world poor in material comforts but rich in wisdom. These wisdom traditions had been transcribed in brilliant colours into pictures of teachers, gods, and their paradises, covering the interior walls of mud brick temples.

From 1926 up to his last Tibetan expedition in 1948, Tucci was able to collect over two hundred portable paintings, as well as many Sanskrit and Tibetan manuscripts. Each of the paintings has its own story, which the volume brings to life through photographs of traditional Tibet from the Tucci expeditions, as well as contributions on the meaning of the sacred images.
The text, edited by Deborah Klimburg-Salter, will introduce the viewer to a world filled with rich imagery—forming a vision both simple and luminous. We will see how the images are meant to help the Buddhist practitioner along the path to liberation—“Awakening”. We see in these paintings images of a cosmos that reflect our earthly existence, where every being has his/her own place but is connected, in ever widening circles, with everything around, and also with what has come beforeand is waiting in the future.
