Tiger in the halls

Spurred on by childfree time in London, arranging prints for a little exhibition I’m doing, I had some new scans done at Hempstead May.

I caught Chödark in the hall wearing this tiger pelt. At the 2006 Kalachakra, His Holiness encouraged Tibetans to stop wearing fur. Heeding his message, furs and skins were burnt in their hundreds of thousands. This skin was probably donated to the monastery at that time and has been laying dusty in cupboard, a bit like my negs!
