Buddhist Art links

Do you have any suggestions for Buddhist art collections from which to draw images to include in talks?

I’d like to include graphics in my presentations related to Buddhism, but it can be a challenge to find a collection of images that has a consistent theme/color palette. While researching this on Discuss&Discover, I saw the interesting post on art and Buddhism (Using art to teach dhamma)

There is also some nice artwork on obo.genaud.net, including a drawing of the naked ascetic Upaka (how’s that for tease to get your attention?) down about 2/3rds of the page
The Story of Upaka

If you know of any other art/clipart/photograph repositories related to Buddhism that could be used to explain key concepts, please share them on this thread. Thank you in advance!

Hi, there is a beautiful collection of artworks illustrating life of Buddha at:

metta :pray:

See this thread Graphic design and painting as a bhikkhu or bhikkhuni, Vinaya - #6 by Snowbird where it links to this website https://www.fourthmessenger.org/. There’s some amazing art by monks and nuns there.
