the Great Compassion, excepted by all Buddhist traditions

painted or embroidered banner which was hung in a monastery or
a family altar and carried by lamas in ceremonial processions.
In Tibetan the word 'than' means flat and the suffix 'ka'
stands for painting. The Thangka is thus a kind of painting
done on flat surface but which can be rolled up when not
required for display. The most common shape of a Thangka is

tempered with a herb and glue solution. The entire process
demands great mastery over the drawing and perfect
understanding of iconometric principles.
