H.H. The 17th Karmapa (Art Print) – Leslie Nguyen Temple
HH Karmapa forwarded a photo of himself to create this portrait. 2015.
Leslie’s first portrait in 1998 was inspired by her teacher, the then young Karmapa in Tibet. She developed this unique technique to finely translate features onto satin using traditional painting methods combined with the use of rich textures of brocades.
