January 26 - March 13, 2009
High quality Tibetan Thangka paintings will be on view during this festival. The dates of the exhibition are January 26 till March 13, 2009. Thangka paintings usually depict deities and saints, aspects of the life of the Buddha, as well as the more abstract Mandalas, astrological charts, medical descriptions and scenes, usually serving as a supplementary aid to religious educational development. They are meant as focal elements for visualization, meditation and contemplation.
A talk by Lama Tenzin Yignyen is expected at the opening reception. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at our temporary phone number at 1.917.923.8118 for more information. This exhibition is organized by Robert Lee with assistance from Adliana Bahrin.
