Tibetan Ritual Objects: Thangkas
We are starting a new series of Featured pages around the category of ritual
objects from the Himalayas. We will begin with a display of thangkas. These
religious paintings on cloth are found throughout the Buddhist areas of China
and Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, and the Buddhist regions of India.
We have arranged a double column of photos with a full view of the thangka on
the left and an enlarged view of the central figure on the right. Both are
linked to larger sized photos. Subject, dimensions, and approximate age is
indicated beneath the enlarged full view photograph.
Many of the thangkas on this page have been sold and have been marked as such.
We have therefore created a
of thangkas, most of which are still available.
When making inquiries about a specific thangka, please be sure to include its
inventory number. A brief description and the dimensions of each
thangka can be found on its enlargement page. For prices please send us an
email requesting the Thangka Price List.
