Can anyone give me a link to this picture?

Does anyone know where this picture came from, and where I can find a nice hi-res image of it?
Many thanks

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

Gosh! That's great! Kind of like contemporary Tibetan mandalas reflected through pop culture.
Thanks Tilt.

Just an FYI, if you go to google.com and click on "Image" in the top bar, it will open the image search. Then you can literally drag and drop an image into the search box and it will do a search based on what that image looks like.

It's actually an easy way to find out about people's user images. For example, for the longest time I knew Tiltbillings looked really familiar, but I just couldn't remember his name. :smile:

When you mentioned Asian contemporary art, it reminded me of this beautiful picture:
