Robert Beer offers a compact, concise reference work based on his previous publication "The Encyclopedia of Tibetan Symbols and Motifs". This handbook contains an extensive array of symbols and motifs, accompanied by succinct explanations. It provides treatment of the most essential Tibetan religious figures, themes, and motifs, both secular and religious. For artists, designers, and all with an interest in Buddhist and Tibetan art, this book features hundreds of the author's own line drawings, depicting landscapes, deities, animals, plants, gurus, mudras (ritual hand gestures), dragons, and other mythic creatures - ranging from complex mythological scenes to small simple ornaments. Robert Beer has studied and practised Tibetan thangka painting for over 30 years. Since the early 1990s, he has worked on an extensive series of iconographic drawings depicting the major deities, lineage holders, and symbols that occur in the spectrum of Tibetan art.
