Green Tara, Mother of all Buddha's pictured in Verdant forest as painted by renowned contemporary Tibetan Buddhist artist Karma Phuntsok.
He fled Tibet with his family after the uprising against the Chinese in 1959, escaping into India as refugees. He studied drawing and painting through his school years in India. In 1973 Karma studied thanka painting with a master of traditional Tibetan thanka painting in Nepal. Since then he has been making paintings based on Tibetan Buddhist deities.
In 1981 Karma migrated to Australia, and now lives in the bush north of Kyogle with his wife and son.
Karma's paintings are collected worldwide, and published in various books and magazines. His recent paintings are mostly experiments, interweaving traditional techniques and symbols, with modern inspirations.
