GENUINE OLD HAND PAINTED TIBETAN THANKA
CREATED IN THE 1960s AND USED
BY A MONK IN TRADITIONAL CEREMONIES

PURCHASED IN NEPAL IN 1988 FROM
THE YOUNGEST SON OF THE TENZIN FAMILY
WHO IS A MONK AND HAS CARRIED THIS THANKA
OVER THE BORDERS AND INTO CHINA TO HOLD
ILLEGAL TRADITIONAL CEREMONIES AMONG THE
TIBETAN PEOPLE WHO ARE FORCED TO LIVE THERE

This Genuine Hand Painted Tibetan Thanka was Hand Painted by Special Monks to be Used in Traditional Religious Ceremonies.
It Measures 92cm x 62cm (36.2 inches x 24.3 inches) to the Edges of its Original Brocade Surround and Has the Traditional Covering Material still attached so it could be rolled to take into China for the Young Monk to hold his services. It shows many wrinkles do to this usage but this has always added to its authenticity to me.
I purchased it in Nepal in 1988 from the young Tenzin  who had been given another Thanka to use in his devotional work.


As Proof of Provenance for this Thanka I have included two articles written and published in 1988. One was for an The Antique Trader magazine and the other and the other Australasian Holiday in the Spring 1988 edition with the elder Mrs Tenzin seen hand spinning wool for rugs in the family's co-operative. I am happy to include copies of these when shipping the item so let me know if you would like these for your records when you make the payment.
