tantric paintings

The images featured above are anonymous paintings from Tantra Song: Contemporary Tantric Paintings from Rajasthan which is up right now at the Santa Monica Museum of Art.

Tantric painting helps the maker to reach spiritual union through meditative painting and focused breathing.  By focusing on the codified images in the works themselves - the viewer is encouraged to privately meditate.

The show is up from September 10–December 10, 2011 at the 
Santa Monica Museum of Art.
