The international Thangka Appliqué Project under the guidance of Densong Norbu is taking place in KIBI now

27.11.2013

An interesting art project is underway in the Karmapa International Buddhist Institute in Delhi. A group of European artists with guided by Densong Norbu are making large thangkas for the temple using the appliqué technique. They started it last year and will continue for several more years. The plan is to create eight large Buddha images about three meters high.

The appliqué technique is used quite rarely for gompa ornaments in Tibet. It was spread in Mongolia and China. However, this project is interesting not only for using a rare technique in Tibet, but also by its own color grade and design solution. Of course, Densong Norbu paints bodhisattva forms and their attributes in accordance with classical canons, but all the color and decor matters are in charge of the international group of artist-embroideress. Densong Norbu’s group makes thangkas from natural silk, decorating them with beads and semiprecious stones. Currently they are working on the image of bodhisattva Manjusri.

If you are interested in this project, you can be fully engaged in it. For example, you can come to India next year and try this new unusual technique of Buddhist art personally.
