Item id: 8755

Antique Tibetan Thangka--unique in that it looks more like it was done with ink-like paint, so the detail is incredible and has a different quality than most thangkas. It has a mandala quality to it. Reportedly purchased by the previous owner's grandfather in the 1940's while in Asia during World War 2 and was supposedly not new when he bought it. I am guessing near 100 years old. I spent a lot of money having it custom-framed with museum glass and using Thai silk matting. Special; only seen one other like it in 30 years (from the same source--he had 2 closely related thangkas purchased at the same time 70 years ago). The other is also listed--item 8748--though this one may be even more amazing. Thangka measures 17 inches x 12 inches. Frame measures 22.75 inches x 17.5 inches .75 inches.
