Live demonstration of Thangka Art making by Puskar Lama
Puskar Bahadur Tamang (Puskar Lama), born in 1979, is the name inseparably linked to the painting of thangka. Since childhood, Mr Tamang has been attracted to thangkas and its spiritual aspect. Thangka was the path for him to gain knowledge, wisdom and social values. These factors lead him to plunge into the art of thangka. When he was barely 14 yrs old, he was motivated not only by its spirituality and self enlightenment but by his love of art, religion and culture. His school of art has become the natural choice for monasteries, collectors, devotees of the thangka art spreading messages of buddha.
*Partial proceeds from the sales of all the Thangka Art pieces will be given to the Buddhist Library Building Fund.
