The Encyclopedia of Tibetan Symbols and Motifs By Robert Beer
This book by Robert Beer is an incredible resource for artists and designers who want to reference Tibetan symbols and artwork for their projects. Highly recommended!
For artists, designers, and all with an interest in Buddhist and Tibetan art, this is the first exhaustive reference to the seemingly infinite variety of symbols found throughout Tibetan art in line drawings, paintings, and ritual objects. Hundreds of the author's line drawings depict all the major Tibetan symbols and motifs—landscapes, deities, animals, plants, gurus, mudras (ritual hand gestures), dragons, and other mythic creatures—ranging from complex mythological scenes to small, simple ornaments.
