Heavenly Tibet, an ongoing exhibition at the National Art Museum of China, celebrates the variety of thangka, the age-old art of Tibetan Buddhist painting.

It shows dozens of paintings that were created by established artists and emerging thangka painters in recent years, and features meticulous delimitation of lines and thick, balanced shading of colors.

The displayed works show the technical inheritance of thangka's major schools, while also exhibit an infusion of modern painting styles.

The exhibition continues through Jan 18.
