    burmese mandala (spirit cloth)

    This mandala spirit cloth painting is from Burma and dates from the mid 20th century. 85 x 88 cm.

     
    Such paintings were commissioned by families of means and used for meditations at home. They are believed to have healing and protective power and to bring good luck to the owner.
     
    The process for creating the mandala was time intensive as work was only done on auspicious days. It has been said that understanding and writing about yantra is like trying to carry an elephant before you know how to carry a mouse.
     
    The drawings featured are unique to the Shan and Lan Na regions of Myanmar and Thailand. Yantra drawings and inscriptions can be found on a variety of mediums. The drawings were executed either by yantra masters or Buddhist monks. In either case, the person would meditate and in a trance-like state begin drawing and chanting. The drawings themselves could incorporate Hinduism, Buddhism, animism, numerology and astrology and they would be in response to the emotional, spiritual and astrological needs of the person requesting the yantra.
     
    In the end, yantra drawings are unique and fascinating works of art replete with meaning and good wishes. They are believed to invoke blessings, specific and general, from all directions of the cosmic universe.
     
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase.

    Hi I am Willian Mitchell Antiques.

    I have a variety of items from different corners of the globe. My work
    as an English teacher has taken me to Asia, Africa and the Middle
    East. It is this travel that set me on the road to antiques and
    collecting. Shops, outdoor markets, private homes, and individuals
    have been the source of my collection. I am especially attracted to
    illustrated textiles and manuscripts and have several on offer. I have
    even more of these from my recent travel to India. I continue to love
    the hunt and the interesting people I meet along the way.
