Fine Asianliving Antique Tibetan Thangka Mahakala Hand-painted and Embroidered
Antique Tibetan Thangka Mahakala Hand-painted and Embroidered
A thangka is a painted or embroidered Tibetan Buddhist banner that was originally hung in a monastery or above a family altar and was worn by monks during ceremonial processions. The Tibetan word thang means flat and indicates that a thangka is a painting on a flat surface, which can be rolled up when no display is needed.
A Thangka is more than a work of art; it is an object of devotion, a tool in spiritual practice, and a source of blessings for those who meditate. These incredible works of art are central to Himalayan culture. Thangka come in a wide variety of styles and depict various subjects, such as Buddhas and Bodhisattvas (enlightened beings), cosmological and astrological images and subjects from traditional medicine.
