Thangka is generally regarded as the most representative form of Tibetan art works. Painted on cotton or silk, a Thangka usually depicts Buddhist deities, scenes, or religious symbols, intended for personal meditation or instruction of monastic students. A Thangka is not large, usually no more than 60 centimeters in width and one meter in length. But painting a Thangka takes time.
