Fragment of beautiful Nepalese thangka. Ideas for the new collection are everywhere.
Thangka is a Tibetan ritual painting presented in Nepal. Thangkas usually picture Buddha or one of the 
Bodhisattvas. On an already prepared canvas a painting with a distinctively silky matte surface is created 
using paints made of flowers, plants, and ground semi- precious stones. The paint for thin, decorative 
lines is made from gold powder. Images of deities in thangka are painted according to a strict canon of 
proportions. Souvenir thangkas are mostly painted using tempera (paint with a base of egg yolks) which 
is easy to recognize by a glossy surface. Gold is also replaced with yellow paint. Thangkas have special 
fabric silk frames, that fit the paintings color-wise.
