Zone de Texte: The Tangka Fashion documentary
The God, the Government and the Gaudy.

   Gone are the days when you can bung a Buddha statue in your loft apartment and expect good karma.  Nowadays, decorative faith is out. In this war-torn world where religion is a bellus causi, having religious artifacts is a serious statement.    
Thank goodness, then, that the great Tibetan and Nepalese cultures that nourished the Buddhist faith for so long, also contrived religious tools that look fantastic in your front room.  
Thangkas are stunning religious gadgets.  Otherwise described as scroll banners, thangkas are seen hanging in every temple, monastery and family shrine in Tibet and Nepal.  They carry painted or embroidered pictures designed for meditation inside a broad silken border and can range in size from the page of a book to the façade of an entire building. Now you can order your very own tailor-made thangka. You can choose a Mandala, a  geometric representation of the Buddhist cosmos. Or you can choose a Buddhist subject of which there are thousands.
