The four mythical Tibetan beasts, the snow lion, tiger, dragon, and garuda, move on a field of crimson. The garuda and dragon soar in a cloud-studded sky over the terrestrial snow lion and tiger who traverse a landscape of mountains and grasslands. The scene is detailed in indigo, green, grey, gold, orange, peach, beige, raw sienna, and deep rosewood.

We start with Tibetan highland sheep's wool known as "Jampbel", which is prized for its luster, stain-resistance and durability. The wool is carefully prepared using traditional hand-spinning and hand-dyeing methods. Teams of weavers then expertly hand-knot the rug on a vertical loom for months, resulting in a distinctive rug that will increase in beauty over the years.
