What is Thangka?
Thangka is a non-legacy work of art in our Tibetan culture. Why can Thangka be widely spread and recognized? Because she is a religious and perfect work of art.
THANGKA AS A LEGEND
It is recorded in the book Buddha statue of Sakyamuni, Crystal Mirror that bTsan Po and Khri Srong bTsan of the 32nd generation of Tubo painted a statue of the auspicious goddess dpal-ldan-lha-mo with their nosebleeds. Chubawan was seen by Guo Zhuxi for a long time, and this painting was placed in the Buddha statue as a hidden content.
THANGKA AS A TIBETAN CULTURE
In fact, Thangka itself is very particular about its production technology, and the technology is very complicated. It takes a lot of effort to draw lines and gold.
A good painting usually takes months or even years, so each Thangka embodies the blood and sweat of the painter.
