"I had never seen an image of Black Tara, so it felt to me that I should paint my Black Tara in the Mahakala thangka style. Here, the Dharma Protector is a fierce goddess sitting on an elephant skin in front of a burning tree, surrounded by black birds." –Mayumi Oda
A giclée (zhee-KLAY) is a fine art archival pigment print. A reproduction of an original art work, the piece is digitally photographed and then precisely reproduced on a large format printer.
Our giclées are printed using the longest lasting pigmented inks on the finest papers available. We use a water based pigment printer on pH balanced paper or fabric. The best quality prints are currently created with 12-color ink sets, as used by our printer.
At this time, this is the only format in which to own Mayumi’s large thangka paintings. Each giclée is signed by Mayumi and includes Japanese calligraphy along the border. Due to their hand-painted nature, calligraphy will vary slightly.
