About the Thangkas
(Also spelt "Tangkas", "Thankas" and "Tankas")
These are extremely fine quality, temple size, limited editions of Thangkas. (The originals are from the Dharma House collection, San Francisco, administered by Bhikshu Karma Tinley.)
All the originals were executed by masters, it must be emphasised that these museum quality Thangkas are absolutely exquisite, vibrant and incredible in detail. Outside of a few select museums and Buddhist centers, access to Thangkas of this quality & size is extremely rare. Even at these impressive large sizes, the intricacy of the details are to be marveled at. (To find out more about our high resolution digital reproduction please click here.)

Giclée has been perfected to a level of sophistication, quality, permanence, and affordability that no other print process can match. It is the technology of choice for many top artists and photographers because of its exceptional ability to preserve the integrity of the artwork or photograph. The image quality, sharpness, color saturation, richness of detail and the depth of black and white of Giclée prints is unparalleled. Archival Giclee prints have a lifespan of 100 years or more on Canvas and Watercolor Rag Paper.
