Antique Silk Tibetan Thangka

19th century silk Tibetan Thangka, 31" x 42", in vibrant colors.

A thangkais a Tibetan Buddhist painting on cotton, or silk appliqué usually depicting a Buddhist deity, scene, or mandala. Thangkas are traditionally kept unframed and rolled up when not on display, mounted on a textile backing somewhat in the style of Chinese scroll paintings, with a further silk cover on the front. Thangka serve as important teaching tools depicting the life of the Buddha, various influential lamas and other deities and bodhisattvas.
