  3. Very nice indeed.
    What is the fisical difference between male and female? Why did u choose to have them
    Both plus the cub?
    Apart from being proctectors of the Buddha, which other meanings appealed to u?
    Thanks! Great piece!!

    • Hi , I just wanted to make a family of snow lions , im not sure if it represent something specific , it might be I can ask my teacher .
      But I feel like animals are going in pairs in any Tibetan drawings iv`e seen , so the baby is just an addition to create a family .
      thank you for looking at my work , also check out it have a lot of iconography and meanings in it

  4. Hello, I am very interested in mahayana buddhism and have been focused on the Tibetan culture for a couple years now. I had depression for about a year and a half but ended because of the ideas I’ve adopted through it. The snow lion is my favorite symbol because of it’s constant happiness, it basically sums up what buddhism has brought into my life. I would be honored to wear this tattoo and was wondering if there was any possible way for me to get it on myself.
