Commissioning or buying a thangka
Carmen can paint you a thangka on commission. Any size is welcome and will be painted in consultation with you (including special dedications & blessings on the back) making it a very personal thangka.
Traditionally, by commissioning a thangka, you will ‘bring the Buddha alive‘ which, according to Tibetan-Buddhism, brings on very positive karma and stabilizes your connection with the Buddha and the path to enlightenment, in this life and in future lives.
Each piece is unique and painted in great detail, therefore even a small thangka can take about 3 to 4 weeks fulltime work.
Prices are based on a single deity in a simple landscape and include all materials (including real gold) and all taxes.
Excluding shipping fees.
