Windhorse and BuddhaWindhorse is an ancient symbol given different names in different cultures. In Tibet, it is called Lungta and represents life force and the soul's journey. Inspired by Tibetan Windhorse prayer flags, Monica Pipia examines their symbols, their colors and their function as "wish-fulfilling jewels” in this vibrant collection of paintings titled Windhorse Country.
