Tantric Song (Blog Link)

Tantra Song is a singular and revelatory collection of rare Tantric paintings made anonymously by adepts in Rajasthan and used to awaken heightened states of consciousness. The paintings’ magnetic, vibratory beauty—as well as their deep affinity with 20th century abstract art—inspires acute attention and boundless contemplation.

The images were discovered by French poet Franck André Jamme in 1970 while rummaging through the catalogues of a Parisian art gallery. Jamme later gained extraordinary access to very private communities of adepts and their intensely beautiful works.

The progeny of seventeenth-century illustrated religious treatises, the drawings have evolved into a distinct visual lexicon designed to awaken heightened states of consciousness and are imbued with specific spiritual meanings.
