The Four Harmonious Friends Wall-hanging

The theme of the four amicable companions is to be found in bounty in Buddhist-propelled workmanship all over the place. The four siblings involve the elephant, the monkey, the rabbit, and the partridge; while the extremely significant agreement lies in their position with respect to one another. This concordance was built up after a time of common dissension. The siblings had gotten down to talking about the age of a banyan tree in the Himalayan lower regions where they abided. The elephant had seen it when it was a shrubbery; the monkey, when it was a bush; and the rabbit, when it was a delicate leafless sapling. In any case, the partridge had conveyed its very seed in its body and planted it there. His age and position were subsequently settled, and shared regard and congruity reestablished in the midst of the four.

Four Harmonious Friends Wall-hanging

  The impeccable wall-hanging that you see on this page includes this exceedingly significant theme. The equivalent is a fine case of Nepalese handicraft, the copper repousse having been finished with incredible ability and work. Focus in on every part of the work to take in the sheer dimension of subtleties - the enhancements on the elephants and the scene they are strolling on, the arrangement of lotus petals and diamonds of red and blue that outline the focal theme, and ashtamangala images along the side orchestrated on either side of the equivalent. Peacocks and a kirtimukha picture are on the lower board, while the upper one highlights increasingly complex repousse. The entire organization is surrounded by more lotus petals that keep running along every one of the four sides of the wall-hanging.
