Authentic Chinese Tibet Thangka acquired in Mustang Kingdom in Nepal.
This Thangka was brought from Chinese Tibet during the migration of people from Tibet to Nepal during the Chinese occupation of Tibet. The work was acquired in Lo Manthang, the former Mustang Kingdom in a remote part of Nepal, just a few kilometers from the Chinese border. It was later framed in Kathmandu, Nepal.
This work follows the local tradition and is framed with a three-layer rich shuttle-woven embroidery, brass knobs with a wooden stretcher bar, and a silk protective screen. For the paints and medium, rice paper is used with local mineral pigments traditionally mixed with yak ghee and decorated with gold.
Thangka is measured 43'' x 28'' with embroidery.Read more about the artist
