Buddhist, Hindu Deities Come Alive In Brilliant Artwork

Mandala Publishing, a branch of multimedia publishing company Insight Editions LP, released two new poster collections on April 14 that illuminate some of the sacred and elaborate stories of Buddhism and Hinduism.

Celestial Gallery: The Poster Collection, Volume I contains 40 posters painted by artist Romio Shrestha, who specializes in the sacred artwork of Tibetan Buddhist. His paintings, according to Mandala Publishing, are intended to invite viewers into meditation and reflection.

The other poster collection, Gods in Print: The Krishna Poster Collection, draws from another Mandala Publishing book on Indian mythological art and also features 40 removable posters painted by various artists.

These paintings are a feast for the eyes, bringing to life the stories of Vishnu, Rama, the Buddha and more. See a sampling of the posters below, with captions from Mandala Publishing's original hardcover books.
