This exhibition of Tibetan banner paintings, thang-kas,

This exhibition of Tibetan banner paintings, thang-kas, is drawn from the collection of Dr. Hahn Kwang-ho, of Seoul. The painting's subject matter ranges from the compassionate goddess Tara to the terrifying guardian figures, and from the remarkable sequence of circular diagrams representing the celestial zones, known as mandalas, to the religious traditions of non-Buddhist Tibet, Bon. All of the paintings are in the thang-ka format, of paint on cotton mounted in silk brocade and suspended from wooden rollers.
