Name The famous tibetan handicraft, Thangka

During your tibet tours, if you are pretty interested in tibetan handicrafts, you should really see Thangka. Thangka is a kind of scroll painting which is knited or drawn on the silk, cloth or paper. The pictutures used by Khangka are of a wide range, but most of them fall into the category of religion. Thangka is drawn by colorful natural mineral pigments and is decorated with gold and silver. A good high quality Thangka usually takes months to be finished. The Thangka made by tibetans is precise and rigorous, balanced and variegated, and the drawing styles are mainly paingting with exact delineation and enriched colors and line drawing in traditional ink and brush. The Buddhists usually buy a Thangka, and then take it to a monastery to be sanctified, and finally take it home to be worshiped. When you travel in tibet, you may watch thangka in many monasteries, in the street, or maybe you can even see the tibetans drawing it. Now, along with the running of the Lhasa Railway, it is so easy to have tours to tibet, so why not apply for certain tibet travel permit and prepare your tibet travel?
