The Sacred Murals Project


In early 2012, Kaveri and TJ Singh had the honour of being asked to design and paint the Prayer Hall at the Sarnath International Ningmya Institute (SINI). Working closely with Tsering Gellek, the director of the Institute and youngest daughter of Rinpoche Tarthang Tulku, they conceived the design, palette and sensiblity of the murals.

 

Over the next few months, they assembled an international groups of artists, to complete the project in about 6 months. These are some images of the project.
