This is an original '60s printing ofYab-yuma photograph by Berkeley’s Paul Kagan, overlayed with a split fountain paisley-inspired lace pattern reminiscent of a light show Published by Family Dog Productions in San Francisco, circa 1967. Stored flat and in the dark for over 40 years, it is in remarkable mint condition. According to Wikipedia, Yab-Yum is Tibetan and means, literally, "father-mother." It is a common symbol in the Buddhist art of India, Bhutan, Nepal, and Tibet representing a "godlike sexual union," usually with the male sitting in lotus position with the female sitting in his lap. While there are various interpretations of the symbolism, the male figure is commonly linked to compassion and "skillful means," while the female partner is linked to "insight.” The symbolism of union and sexual polarity is a central teaching of Tantric Buddhism, especially in Tibet. Yab-yum is generally understood to represent the primordial, mystical union of wisdom and compassion. This is a very pleasant piece of art to be around. It is also printed on a pebbled stock common for the era which gives it unexpected richness and depth. Photographer: Paul Kagan Size: 23 x 28 Condition: Mint
