Custom Painted Thangkas
Commissioning a thangka at Norbulingka is a one to one experience. Our thangka artists will research and create a thangka to the needs of a patron, determining the size, the subject and which deities to include. They will guide the patron and ensure the iconography is correct as per the proportion grid and colors of the deities. Possibilities are immense and in the past, our masters and their apprentices have created series of thangkas on particular subjects, such as the 12 deeds of the Buddha, the 16 Arhats, the lives of the Dalai Lamas and many more.
Materials: Our thangka painters use natural pigments and 24 kt gold.
