  • 1. Tibetan art
  • 2. <ul><li>The art found in Tibet is deeply religious in nature, from the extremely detailed statues found in Gompas to the wooden carvings and the designs of the Thangka paintings. </li></ul><ul><li>Tibetan art is an everyday reality which can be found in almost every object and every aspect of daily life. </li></ul>
  • 3. <ul><li>Thangka paintings, an amalgamation of Indian scroll-painting with Nepalese and Kashmiri painting, first appeared in the 8th century in Tibet. Rectangular in shape and painted on cotton or linen, they usually portray traditional motifs including religious, astrological, and theological subjects. Organic and mineral pigments are added, to ensure that the image will not fade, and the painting are framed in colorful silk embroidery. </li></ul>
  • 4. <ul><li>Features of Tibetan architecture include houses and monasteries which are built on elevated, sunny sites facing the south. They are commonly made of a mixture of rocks, wood, cement and earth. Very little fuel is available for heating or lighting, and so flat roofs are built to conserve heat, and multiple windows are constructed to let in sunlight. Walls are usually sloped inwards at roughly 10 degrees as a precaution against frequent earthquakes in the mountainous area. Tibetan homes and buildings are white-washed on the outside, and elobaratly decorated inside. </li></ul>
