What are Thangkas?
In Nepal you will find the
two kinds of Thangkas. Newari and Tibetan Thangaks. ar Newari Thangka
Paintings are for both Hindu and Buddhist deities in different sizes
and price range painted by the experienced artists of Newar community
of Kathmandu valley, noted historically for their brilliant works
of spiritual t and architecture, have been practicing Paubha Paintings
The Newari Thangka Paintings also known as Paubha Paintings which is
considered as an endangered art, similar to that of Tibetan Thangka Paintings.
There are only a very small number Paubha painters left in Nepal
today. We present the works of few highly respected Paubha artists
USE OF THANGKAS
There are various use of Thangka
Paintings. Thangka or Thanka serve many purposed in Tibetan & Newari society
FRAME YOUR THANGKAS
Thangkas are traditionally
framed with brocade in Tibet and Nepal. In Europe and the United
States it is hard to find the thangka painter to frame your Thangkas
so Thangkas without a brocade require some kind of frames.
below from the Tibet Shop (Finland) .
Generally made of wood, often
painted with gold, custom hard frames give the best protection for
a thangka and are many times the only possibility with higher quality
artworks. There are some important things that you don't necessarily
get from an averge framing shop without asking: All cardboard should
be acid-free. It would be better if the paints do not touch the glass.
This can be done with a colored cardboard frame between the glass
and the painting (the red inner frame in the photo). All the thangkas
have a 1 inch border, usually red, which
will be hidden behind the cardboard frame. Also it would be better
if the framer didn't use glue to fix the painting.
The thangkas can be framed with
or without a glass. The drawback of using a glass is reflecting light,
but it has many benefits. Cleaning, protecting, moving and preserving
the thangka becomes easier. We, ourselves, use a glass with every
framed thangka. For the people, who can afford the absolute best,
there is special non-reflecting glass, which is even difficult to
see. We sometimes tried matte glass to avoid reflecting light, but
didn't like the result much. It is very important to protect the
painting from direct sunlight. It may be possible to find special
UV-glass to protects the paints from ultraviolet rays.
Ready-made frames are an affordable
way to quickly frame a thangka. If the size is good and the background
carboard is of right color, they can look quite good. One problem
is that the paint touches the glass and may stick after some years.
Also, the edges of the canvas are not always cleanly cut. Both of
these problems are solved, if you cut a colored cardboard frame,
and place it between the the painting and the glass, as explained
above with the custom frames.blessing
