Tantric Tibetan Buddhist Calendar Wall Relief Sculpture Item No. 8001S Reproduction after Museum Original This calendar shows a synthesis of Chinese, and Tibetan Buddhist influences that are typical of the Tantric art of Tibet. In the center of the calendar there is a wheel with the eight trigrams that comprise the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching, and outside of that center section we see the animal that symbolize the 12 years of the Chinese calendar. That central area is being dovoured by Vajrapani. Vajrapani is the embodiment of the spiritual strength of the Buddhas. He appears in a wrathful aspect, displaying his power to overcome outer, inner and secret obstacles At the top of the relief there are several Buddhist deities lead by Manjusri, the Lord of Wisdom, cutting through ignorance with his sword.
Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
