THANGKAS AND STATUES

In the 1950s, many precious thangkas (traditional Tibetan paintings) and statues associated with the Lelung cycle of teachings were lost or destroyed. Lelung Rinpoche has begun a process of recreating these images, which are of great cultural significance for the Tibetan people. In order to ensure authenticity of the newly created images, he hopes to commission older, experienced artists who saw the originals before they disappeared.
