Kindly note: Traditional thangka artists do not sign their name on their completed work.
By not doing so, it is a symbol of humility and reluctance to take any merit for the work that they created. Preferably, the artwork is considered as a tribute to the dharma and the deity they create.
Please be aware of the misconception that thangka art is worth more when signed by the artist.
