Wheel of Three

Art Description

This is a visual representation of lotuses summoning prayer wheels (mani-lag-khor). Lotuses are a symbol of purity, strength, resilience, and transcendence. They are used extensively in Buddhism out of admiration of the beauty of the flower, which can grow in the lowest mud. The spinning wheels from the lotus represent living and the evoking of a sense of spiritual well-being within us. It is believed that spinning a prayer wheel has the same meritorious effect as reciting the prayers.

Sonam Deki

Born 1996, from Samdrup Jongkhar

I graduated with a degree in Public Health from Asian University for Women, Bangladesh.

Art has always been a big part of my life, an outlet for expression that transcends words. VAST Bhutan has helped in my journey of becoming an artist in that sense. The varieties of techniques I have learned and continue to learn from the members of VAST are abundant. Learning to use different tools, techniques and materials is a source of endless fascination for me. It takes me quite a long time to complete an artwork. Each day I paint with the changes in emotions and thoughts and each day a newer work comes about which makes me feel very attached to what I create. I don’t put much detail in my artwork, but I plan to learn as much from my fellow artists who have graduated from art colleges. I like painting portraits to accept our vanity and also because a moment or an expression can be captured permanently, whereas, in reality, it is ever-changing.
