A square silk meditation panel, set within a wide blue silk border and embroidered with 13 by 13 small squares, each composed of four triangles in an overall design of a large square divided into four triangles.
Meditation panels are usually related to Buddhism, but can also reflect colour symbolism, cosmology and numerology.
13 is considered a holy number in Tibetan Buddhist belief and in the ancient Bon practices. It is a critical number in measuring periods of time and for completing specific religious tasks. Its origins may lie in the moon cycle of thirteen lunar months in a lunar year of 384 days.
