 KAILASH BLACK MOUNTAIN

INTRODUCTION

Sacred to Hindus, Jains, Buddhists and Bons, this grey black pyramid of solid rock striated with untouchable snow rises a towering 22,000 feet above sea level. This incredible site is considered to be the holiest mountain on the planet and for Tibetan Buddhists is the “navel of the world.” The abstracted play of high contrast across the sacred mountain’s surface fills Ricardo Mazal’s Kailash paintings with force, movement and change, yet at the same time they possess, like the mountain itself, an austere and impassable solidity.
