Recently, Rinpoche asked us to collect images of great patrons of Buddhism to create a gift for some of the patrons of Khyentse Foundation. In our search we were disappointed to find only a scant few images of the great King Ashoka. It got us thinking, and now we are happy to announce the Ashoka Portrait Project.
We invite the artists in the sangha to create portraits of King Ashoka and submit them to us for an online auction. We will collect digital copies of the artwork for the auction next year, and winning bidders will be sent the originals. All proceeds will go to support the activities of the Foundation. All visual media will be accepted. Artists will be responsible for mailing the portraits to the winning bidders.
Please submit a digital version of your Ashoka portrait by May 1, 2012.
