RESPECTING DHARMA IMAGES
In the Buddhist tradition it is customary for images of Buddhas and deities to be treated with care and respect. The Buddha, along with the pantheon of deities within Tibetan Buddhism are representations of enlightenment – the highest state of wisdom and love – manifesting out of compassion for the benefit of all sentient beings. We can show respect to deity images by placing them on a shrine, or in a high place. Please do not place them on the ground, step over them, or sit on them. Should you wish to discard of a deity image, it is advisable to burn the image rather than disposing of it in the garbage.
ABOUT REPRODUCTION GICLéE PRINTS
Padma Studios® works closely with an exceptional fine art printing company in Los Angeles using state-of-the-art laboratory technology and giclée processing, an intense-resolution twelve-color digital imaging system of unsurpassed quality and accuracy. This advanced system creates prints of exceptional depth and saturation of color, as well as coatings completed with dye based inks (watercolors included), which are by nature fugitive (i.e. affected by light and moisture conditions). Printed on acid-free fine art archival paper, each print is meticulously inspected by the artist to ensure it meets the highest standard of print quality resulting in a faithful reproduction that is virtually indistinguishable from the original painting, and sometimes improved.
LIMITED EDITION Prints
Artist Portfolio limited edition giclée prints are limited to fifty and are mounted on high quality archival black board and titled with 24 kt gold. Large giclée prints are limited to fifty; extra large (and larger) giclée prints are limited to ten. Small and medium giclée prints are unlimited.
As outlined in the store, sizing varies from painting to painting, depending on the original size of the painting and the quality of the lab's digital image. To inquire about additional size options, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Canvas – BY special request
It may be possible for some prints to be printed on fine art archival canvas, allowing for you to have your print stitched with traditional thanka brocade. A small fee for the canvas upgrade may apply. Please email your request to: email@example.com.
Please take care to ensure your original artwork or giclée print is not exposed to direct sunlight or excessive moisture. Once purchased in pristine condition, Padma Studios® shall not be responsible for any ruination caused by neglect or environmental damage.
