Tibetan thangkas (pronounced tong'-ka) painted by artists of Dawa Arts are masterpieces of Buddhist art, representing centuries old Buddhist iconographic rules. Because of the sacredness and uniqueness of these items, they cannot be mass-produced. Please read on for information on the process of purchasing a Dawa Arts thangka for yourself or as a special gift.

As you move around this web site, you will see a vast number of thangkas: Amitabha Buddha thangkas, Mahakala thangkas, mandalas, etc. This array of thangkas is intended to demonstrate the variety and singular beauty of the types of thangkas that may be produced; many, but not all, of the displayed items have already been sold. If a piece you are particularly fond of is not available for purchase, you may simply request one of a similar type. You may even send in a colour photo of a thangka you would like to have approximately reproduced.

Prices are not published on the web page because of the constant flux in currency values, the varying costs of delivery depending on country, and the occasional need to engage master artists who normally do not belong to our organization.

To inquire about the pricing and availability of thangkas or to request a special order, please send us a mail regarding your particular interest. As mentioned above, please remember that thangka paintings are sacred creations. Each one takes time. If you order a painting, you will need to exercise patience. Even the smallest mandala takes two months to create. Larger thangkas or extremely intricate thangkas often take one year or longer to complete. So when you special order a thangka, please know that your patience will be well-rewarded.
