Salve Regina University (Newport, RI) asked Maria to create its first annual Clairborne Pell Award to honor the Dalai Lama during his recent visit.
Maria painted Salve's insignia, the Pell family crest and lettered this scroll on rare, delicate Italian handmade paper. This scroll was tied with ribbon and placed in a cherry box (reminiscent of Potala Palace, the Dalai Lama's boyhood residence) that Maria commissioned from noted furniture designer, Nicholas Hollibaugh (email). Original is approximately 5 x 23 inches (13 x 58 cm). [Click scroll for a larger view. Click again for a supersized view.]
