This exhibition features sacred tangka artworks created by internationally acclaimed master artist and tangka painter Karsang Lama from the Dharmapala Thangka Center of Kathmandu in Nepal. Tibetan sacred paintings are unframed and can be rolled up, often depict Buddhist deities. In this show, both peaceful and wrathful deities from the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions will be on display. The role of wrathful iconography is to provide protection for religious practitioners as well as sacred Tibetan Buddhist sites.
