Orange


In Tibetan Plateau’s rarified atmosphere, orange is the color of fire, of fall, of sunset. For its inhabitants, as a go between red and yellow, both sacred colors, orange joins their ranks and finds its place on temple murals and religious paraphernalia; book wrappers, monk’s woven belts and monastery walls. Orange is one of Norlha’s favorite colors, evoking the coming of fall and the deep cultural ties it holds with its environment.
