Renowned British artist, Chris Levine has released the only official portrait of His Holiness The Dalai Lama in celebration of his 80th birthday.
Levine has taken the picture using 3D light technology, which is similar to his famous portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, ‘Lightness of Being’ in 2012. The photograph will be developed as a lenticular print with the help of a technique that presents an image in three dimensions when viewed from different angles. The proceeds from the sales and royalties of the portrait will be donated to charities working with the communities affected by the series of earthquakes in Nepal.
