CINDY YE' THANGKA COLLECTION EXHIBITION
Recommendation by the New York Gallery of Chinese Art and Thangka collectors.
- New York Gallery of Chinese Art, 91 Allen Street, New York, NY, United States
Join New York City art collector Cindy Ye as she shares her top Thangka picks for the holiday season. Thangka is a type of drawing that incorporates traditional crafts. Each pigment is created using natural minerals, plants, and other materials. These pigments are then applied to polished cotton garments. Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan history, legends, folklore, astronomy, medicine, geography, and other topics are depicted in the drawings. The thangka, a Tibetan painting on cotton or silk with ground mineral pigment, is one of the primary meditational tools in Buddhist practise. A thangka typically depicts a central Buddhist deity or teacher surrounded by associated gods and lineage figures, describes events or myths attributed to important religious teachers, or serves as a blueprint for a specific deity's realm as a mandala. By meditating on the iconographic imagery associated with the specific Buddhist teaching, the viewer gains merit and makes spiritual progress.
