This Buddhist monk from Tibet is holding this bowl of tea like it is a treasure. I love the dirty and cracked fingernails. In this quilt I have added some hand embroidery in the wrinkles of the hands. The text in his robe are OMS referring to compassion, health, love and prosperity. This piece draws one in to the life of a monk and the reverence that he has for the simple things.
