Leading expert in Himalayan art Jeff Watt now points me to a page outlining the iconographic elements of the mandala, and more specifically, a mandala containing a representation of the wrathful deity Yama Dharmaraja. At the Tricycle Community, we’ll be featuring Jeff sometime soon and he will be available to walk you through the iconography and symbology of select pieces of art and to answer your questions. Related: Through the fall and into winter, the Rubin Museum of Art will be featuring a three-part exhibit on the mandala, which you can read about here.
