To me, the process of painting Cloisonné Filigree Thangka is like meditation. Once I immerse myself in the world of Thangka, I lose track of time. My mind becomes extremely focused and serene. Throughout the creative process, my thoughts are upon living beings of the world.  I wish to dedicate everything I do for the benefit of these living beings. Painting Thangka is my spiritual cultivation: I wish to dedicate all the merit and virtue to the whole world, so that sentient beings can leave suffering and attain bliss.

Commission a Thangka

Cloisonne Filigree Thangkas are commissioned upon request. They are meticulously created by Master Tsultrim Norbu. Due to the time it takes to create a thangka, the uniqueness of the materials used, and the mastery of the skills involved in each painting, thangkas are intrinsically valuable artistic creations. If you are interested in commissioning a unique thangka from our atelier, feel free to contact us and discuss possibile options. 


My wish is that one day, from our hard work of transmitting our lineage from one generation to the next, Cloisonne Filigree Thangka will become an integral part of Tibetan culture. We see that the interactivity between the Tibetans and Chinese Han people over successive generations, preserves the quintessence of  each culture in a reciprocal way, they mutually enhance and bring out the best in each other. And may the inspiration and abundant blessings preserved from this endeavor flourish and abide for all time.

His filigree paintings are regal and resplendent. Shimmering in a sea of gold, silver and jeweled colors, his thangkas are illumined with a rare opulent beauty, yet they never drop down to the level of superficial flamboyance. The thangkas are lit from within by a noble luminescence.
Every aspect of the procedure is executed with finesse, sparing no detail. One couldn't be off even by a tad. It’s a back-breaking process. Even a medium-sized Thangka can take a few months, sometimes a few years to complete. And throughout the process, the artist remains focused and absorbed. With each stroke he regulates his breath so that every inhale and exhale is a strategic maneuver towards birthing his art into completion.
