A Thangka painting is a sacred work of art that is rich with symbolism. They are important supports for meditation and visualisation and can also be used to confer a lineage transmission. Practitioners of the Vajrayana and Bön lineages will typically commission thangkas that reflect their own particular tradition and style of painting. They have traditionally adorned the walls of Tibetan monasteries and Buddhist homes for many centuries and are often used as the focal point on an altar or shrine. We believe our thangkas are amongst the best available in the marketplace. All are traditionally mounted within a fine brocade frame. Each piece is hand selected for quality and checked thoroughly to make sure it is iconographically correct. Our finer works can take the artist several months to complete and in some cases many years.

We try our best to purchase directly from the artist, and not to buy from the lower quality Thangka wholesalers that are common in Nepal and India. This means greater financial support is given to the artists, which aids them to produce finer quality works. Due to paying a higher premium, we get a choice of only the best paintings. The quality of the more expensive thangkas is reflected in the standard of painting, the size of the piece, materials used (eg. 24k gold and stone pigment paints) and the higher standard of brocade frame. It is not difficult to see why our paintings are in the homes of practitioners and Buddhist centres all over the world. For the finest quality iconographically correct thangkas look no further!

Can't find what you want? We can also commission thangkas of Buddhas, deities, yidams, protectors and lineage gurus that may not be shown on our website. If you are interested in purchasing a thangka that is not shown, please feel free to contact us with your requirements. Photographs will never do these wonderful paintings full justice, however, if you do require further images to help your decision then please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thangkas that you see on our website are only available by special commission. This means the thangka is painted by our artists for you alone. There will be a period of some weeks or months before the thangka has been completed, however, it will certainly be worth the wait. We also hold a stock of many thangkas and they will be labelled as 'In Stock' if this is the case.


It is considered to be very meritorious to commission a thangka for your personal practice or to give one as an offering to your Lama. This is because it represents the Nirmanakaya or the emanation body of a Buddha and thus has the power to transform the minds of those who view it. It also helps form a greater connection between you and the deity that the thangka represents. Many high lamas instruct their students to commission thangkas to remove obstacles or purify negative karma and therefore it has far greater significance and blessing than buying an already completed thangka.


All of our thangkas are painted on cotton canvas and framed with brocade in the traditional manner.
