The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of Tibet, promoting essential human values such as compassion, forgiveness, and tolerance. As such, he is a cultural synecdoche for peace and acceptance, encompassing a vision of humanity at its most harmonious. However, it is important to note that the Dalai Lama is still human in nature, and David Gamble’s image of him relaxing and covering his face grounds him in humanity. He appears almost like a celebrity hiding his face from paparazzi, adding a realistic and potentially comedic edge to him. The Dalai Lama is the perfect addition to Humanity, representing higher moral human idealisms while walking the earth as a human being, just like any one of us.
