This calendar features Tibetan and Chinese thangkas, devotional paintings used as teaching tools. Originally carried by nomadic storytellers to illustrate their tales, thangkas evolved into religious artifacts fabricated in adherence to faithfully observed rituals and iconography. The twelve thangkas reproduced in this calendar date from the sixteenth century to the nineteenth century.Published with the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. Size: 12 x 13 in.; opens to 12 x 26 in.
