Country Group: The Himalayas (Tibet, Nepal, Mongolia and Other)
Vivid antique Himalayan Thangka (back had the right look and smell of a true antique- I had the chance to examine prior to framing). Unusual, very intense style- I could not look away from the central figure's gaze- it has a real presence to it. Even though approaching 100 years, the colors are vivid, and the condition is very clean- likely used little. Probably Tibetan, though the style is so distinctive, maybe from somewhere else in the Himalayas. Framed with museum glass, Thai silk, and double matting. The inner mat measures 11.75" x 17", frame measures 20" x 25.5"
