Early 20th C. Tibetan Miniature Thangka

A tangkasnet, or thangka is a Tibetan Buddhist painting on cotton or silk appliqué, usually depicting a Buddhist deity, scene, or mandala. Tangkas can be mounted on a textile backing somewhat in the style of Chinese scroll paintings, with a further silk cover on the front. So treated, tangkas can last a long time. Most thankas are relatively small, comparable in size to a Western half-length portrait, but some are extremely large, several metres in each dimension; these were designed to be displayed, typically for very brief periods on a monastery wall, as part of religious festivals. Most thangkas were intended for personal meditation or instruction of monastic students. They often have elaborate compositions including many very small figures. A central deity is often surrounded by other identified figures in a symmetrical composition. Thangka serve as important teaching tools depicting the life of the Buddha, various influential lamas and other deities. Framed Size: 9" X 6-1/2"
