Looking for Thangka of Longchen Nyingthig Refuge Tree

Post by Mr. G » Mon Jul 30, 2018 3:14 pm

Hi everyone,

I have a friend that is looking for a thangka of the longchen nyingthig refuge tree. I've found many posters and postcards, but no thangkas. I'm also wary of the ones I've found on ebay as the inconography may be incorrect.

Cany anyone point me in the right direction?

Not exactly cheap, but here you go: https://garudashop.com/collections/jigm ... -nyingthik

You can get this one for much less: https://fineartamerica.com/featured/lon ... anias.html

Or this one, not really a refuge tree : https://garudashop.com/collections/gicl ... ra-birmane

If your friend could work with a poster until a thangka was available, try mahasiddha.org.

The other thing you can do is find a good quality high resolution image and find an outlet that prints on to canvas or vinyl then does the traditional brocade around it. There are now many places to do this, they even do the gold outlining on the image if you want. It makes a traditional thangka more affordable, and they appear just as good as the original.
