BHUTANESE FESTIVAL DANCER                   © IRIS BROOKS

SPIRITS OF THE RAINFOREST is a celebration of the emergence of new life in a continual cycle in rainforests throughout the world. Rain, 
as a force of nature is both destructive and creative. Evidenced by the severity of storms on one hand, it is a nurturing live-giving element 
on the other. The "spirits" in 
this piece, captured in Borneo, deep in the rainforest, will become visible the longer 
one gazes at the mandala. 


LIMITED-EDITION 
CANVAS GICLEE    
1/10

This limited-edition photograph was taken at the Paro Festival,

in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, where colorful masked dance-dramas steeped in the lore of the land, preserve history and cultural identity in a living performance practice for the Bhutanese society. The grand culmination of this celebratory Buddhist festival is the viewing of a giant, unfurled scroll, said to wash away all evils (or one’s resurrection through art).
