Art Description

Painting: oil on Wood.

Painting made in response to the novel, The Snow Leopard by Peter Mattiessen. The work is an illustration from the following excerpt "A thousand years ago, the old script says, a great yogin named Drutob Senge Yeshe arrived here on a flying snow leopard to convert to buddhism a wild folk ruled by a dead mountain god. Aided by snake beings the mountain god resisted this conversion, but the snow leopard reproduced himself one hundred and eight times, and the mountain god was overcome. Drutob Senge Yeshe made the mountain god a protector of the dharma and transformed and indistingished summit into this crystal mountain that is sacred all throughout all of Dolpo and beyond."
