Super Selfie shows us images of American superheros- Wonderwoman and Bat Girl- framing White Tara who is the female embodiment of the Buddha and Goddess of Compassion as if to say, Tara is here to help save the day! She is powerful and ready to fight the powers of darkness for the benefit of all sentient beings. Being them is Tara's mantra: Om Tare Tuttare Ture Swaha!
Here we find Karma making the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas more accessible to our current climate and conditions. He injects the female Buddha into the Western stream of consciousness. He gives us similar role models like Bat Girl or Supergirl to teach us how to understand and relate to the Buddhas. Plus, they are pretty darn cool! While Tara is unlikely to suddenly show up as we are about to be mugged, she protects us from our mental and emotional limitations and constraints and shows us the way to our own Buddha nature. This is even more valuable than beating up bad guys.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Karma Phuntsok is a pioneer of Tibetan contemporary art and one of the few Tibetan artists who directly experienced the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959. After escaping to India, Karma studied traditional Tibetan thangka painting for several years. In the 1970's, he began to explore new techniques and materials, interweaving modern with traditional symbols. Karma's paintings are now held in public and private collections around the world. As one of today's most influential artists, Karma has also paved the way for others, both Tibetan and non-Tibetan, seeking new ways to combine traditional Tibetan iconography with contemporary work.
