The "Tibet Thangka Art Exhibition" which kicked off on November 16, is going to wrap up on Monday, Nov. 22 at the Cultural Palace of Nationalities in Beijing, with over 80 masterpieces of Thangka paintings publicly displayed for a whole week.

Apart from regular display of Thangka paintings, painting materials, renowned Thangka painters were also invited to demonstrate their skills on the spot. Besides, lectures were also held to popularize knowledge on Thangka as well as its inheritance, protection and development.

Thangka, a Tibetan silk scroll painting with embroidery, usually depicting Tibetan Buddhist deity, famous scenes, or mandala of some sort, has been inscribed as the first batch of Chinese Intangible Cultural Heritage.
