ABOUT THE TIBETAN GALLERY & STUDIO
The Tibetan Gallery & Studio is home to Tibetan thangka painting master, Tashi Dhargyal. He is the first Tibetan to paint a giant ceremonial thangka, known as thanbhochi, outside Tibet. It is estimated it will take five years to complete, after which it will tour museums, and be donated to a monastery in Tibet. The two-story canvas is comprised of 37 Buddhas, deities and teachers. The Gallery is fiscally sponsored and has the aim of preserving Tibetan art.
