Tibetan Thangkas: Saturdays at LHUCA

Tibetan Thangkas
From the Indian Subcontinent and Tibetan Plateau

Saturday, September 26, 2015
11:30 am – 1:00 pm
LHUCA , 511 Ave K
Martin McDonald Gallery

Meet the Collector Michael Leach
My interest in Tibetan art began in 1982 as I started traveling in India, Nepal, Tibet and China. The pieces in the exhibition span a period from the late 1700's to the mid to late 20th Century.
The creation of the thangka was essentially a meditation which resulted in sacred art that would help others with visualizations and meditations.
