Thangka painting schools in Nepal help to keep Tibetan traditions alive. A true masterpiece, this painting is the perfect addition to your home, meditation area, or altar space.
The thangka depicts a beautifully detailed Shakyamuni Buddha design and is unframed and ready for Western style framing. It is done entirely by hand on cotton canvas using natural mineral and vegetable pigments with 24K gold details. The complicated designs, intricate brushstrokes, and extraordinary detail make these thangkas genuine works of art.
According to tradition, Shakyamuni traveled widely throughout the Indian subcontinent sharing his enlightened wisdom, promoting peace, and teaching people how to unleash the great potential of their lives. His compassionate intention was to enable all people to attain the same awakened state of life that he had attained.Dimensions (approximate):
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.
