Sokushinbutsu Rug ( Made-To-Order )

Sokushinbutsu Rug ( Made-To-Order )


3 years ago, I was in Nepal to meet with local artisans because I wanted to learning about hand-knotted rugs, a tradition dating back thousands of years. When COVID hit, the artisans I met found themselves in a difficult situation, leaving many without work. Together, we designed the hand knotted Sokushinbutsu (Deepest Meditation) Rug.

Each rug is:

– Hand knotted making each one unique
– Takes one craftsman around 60 days to weave one piece
– Made from 100% natural sheep’s wool
– Extra thick pile 32 x 42 inches size

The devastation of covid wasn’t the sole reason I wanted to work with these artisans. I also believe that this tradition may not exist in 25 years.

This hand-knotted wool Tibetan meditation rug, is a reimagining of my previous themes. Rooted in my exploration of cultural narratives, this piece features a Sokushinbutsu scene—an embodiment of transcendence—depicting a serene skeleton in the lotus position. A juxtaposition of mortality and meditation it portrays an intersection of life and contemplation, a theme that has woven throughout my earlier artworks.
