Tibet Art

Tibet Art is a compromise of the rugged landscape and the mystical deities of Tibetan Buddhism. Buddhist symbols are evident in the Tibetan paintings called Thangkas and the Tibetan Rugs.

At the individual picture pages of the Tibetan Rug Gallery, Tibetan Textile Gallery and the Tibet Art Gallery, I discuss the meanings of Tibet Art symbolism and all antiques, textiles present.

Thangkas are predominately from Nepal. Nepalese artist are renown Buddhist artist. Nepalese have worked hand in hand with Tibetans creating the Buddhist Wall Murals, Tibetan Statues, and all other means of Tibetan Art since Buddhism was introduced to Tibet. The Tibetan Rug is the only unique Tibet Art of Tibetan culture that I can think of.

One may think of the Tibetan Antiques and Tibetan Art as primitive or folk art which is true for the most part. Materials can be human skulls, bones, different woods, leather, silver, brass and paint. Practicality on the Tibetan Plateau is the principle concern especially when you consider antiques. Though there were commissions given for Tibet Art, and there were skilled artisans often the monastery was a recipient of village and nomad donations. One who understands the nature of Tibetan life can love and collect Tibetan Art and Tibetan Antiques.
