|aThangkas are scrolled devotional paintings used in Tibetan Buddhist rituals. This video offers insight into their symbolic and religious meaning and their place in the practice of Buddhism. The artists in this video are Tibetan refugees who have devoted their lives to preserving this sacred tradition and they illustrate in great detail the techniques used, from preparing the canvas and grinding the pigments to drawing the images.
