Vintage Tibetan Hand-painted Tara Buddha Fabric Thangka Art cs708-5S
Originally, traveling monks carry the Thangka around because the scroll paintings were easily rolled and transported from monastery to monastery. This thangka served as important teaching tools depicting the life of the Buddha, various influential lamas and other deities and Bodhisattva. To Buddhists, these Tibetan religious paintings offer a beauty, believed to be a manifestation of the divine, and are thus visually stimulating.
Overall Thangka is treated as a religious art which is used as a meditation tool to help bring one further down the path to enlightenment. The Buddhist Vajrayana practitioner uses the image as a guide, by visualizing themselves as being that deity, thereby internalizing the Buddha qualities.
Later, people see Thangka as a colorful wall hanging, as an art for appreciation and collection.
