Tibetan Calendar of the Year. [Wisdom Publications]

Tibetan Art Calendar 2010

I’ve seen these around for years. Produced by Buddhist publisher Wisdom, a quality outfit, these calendars are big, high-quality, really frame-able art. If you’re going to get a spiritual/Buddhist calendar, this one may not be full of Pema Chodron quotes, but it’d be my choice. To buy or for price info, click here.

Poster-sized reproductions of classical paintings produced to the highest standards. An annual favorite

This is why Wisdom’s Tibetan Art Calendar is so special. It’s an affordable way to enjoy incredibly rare and meaningful works of sacred art, year-round. These thirteen sacred paintings by Tibet’s master painters represent a variety of classical images, mandalas, deities, and icons. Each poster-sized picture is produced to the highest German printing standards, and is suitable for framing. Complete with in-depth explanations of their cultural and philosophical significance, these exquisite fine art reproductions will be treasured for years to come.

Praise & Reviews

Three-time honoree for classical art by the Calendar Marketing Association.The curator of the Rubin Foundation’s Himalayan Art Project has called Wisdom’s Tibetan Art Calendar an incredible fine-art collection in itself.

A three-time Calendar Marketing Association “Best Classical Art” award-winner, the Tibetan Art Calendar is an unmatchable value and a perfect gift for any Buddhist, yoga practitioner, or art lover.

The antique scroll-art masterpieces seen in Wisdom’s Tibetan Art Calendar 2008 are called thangkas. While the thangka is common to Tibetan Buddhists, its finest examples are highly sought-after in the international art community and have become hot properties in the same vein as Oriental rugs and ceramics. As a result, the best of these works are seldom, if ever, available for public viewing.
