... it is the pictorial objective of one’s own striving,
symbol of a divine whole, facilitating awareness of the divine
within oneself and, ultimately, realization of the deity from within one’s own self“
(Helmut Uhlig, Tantrische Kunst des Buddhismus, Ullstein 1981)
Dear Thangka admirers, friends of Tibet and of Dharma
For more than 30 years now, we have been involved with Thangkas and have long been enthusiastic collectors of these
unique scroll paintings, as well. Close connections with Nepalese masters of this exquisite sacred art of the
Himalayas have existed since the early 1970’s.
Through many national and international exhibitions, we have gained recognition in Germany (numerous venues), Switzerland
(Bern and Zurich), Italy (Florence), The Netherlands (Hardenberg) and the USA (Walton, New York).
Particularly since the Chinese occupation of Tibet, the painting of traditional Thangkas has suffered a dramatic
set-back and we regard it as a central element of our endeavors to help this ancient art to continue to flourish
in Nepal and thus, to also contribute toward upholding one of the most significant pillars of Tibetan culture.
