This Buddhist monk from Tibet is holding his bowl of tea like it is a treasure. I love the dirty and cracked fingernails. In this quilt, I have added some hand-done embroidery in the wrinkles of his hands. The text is made up of Ohms, referring to compassion, health, love, and prosperity. This quilt required forty-seven colors of thread and forty-six hours of work to complete.
