Video: Diagrammatic Art

Diagrammatic Art, primarily paintings and murals, is intended to convey large amounts of highly structured and codified information to the viewer.

One of the most interesting diagrammatic works in the didactic category is a painted illustration of the Bon teachings explaining Dzogchen philosophy and training.
