Preventive Conservation of Thangka Paintings (Ministry of Culture).
Thangkais a Tibetan Buddhist painting on cotton, silk appliqué, usually depicting a Buddhist deity, scene, or mandala. Thangkas are traditionally kept unframed and rolled up when not on display, mounted on a textile backing somewhat in the style of Chinese scroll paintings, with a further silk cover on the front. Thangka is used in monastery for worshiping as deity. Due to its organic nature these paintings areprone to damage from environmental conditions and natural ageing. The Thangka’s are getting damaged due to improper storage and also because of wrong transportation and handling. It has a long historical tradition and need to be preserved for future generations. This webinar is an effort to understand its problem and how this can be preserved for longer duration without hampering its present use.
