[collection introduction]: Tangka, also known as tangga and Tangka, is a Tibetan language. It refers to religious scroll paintings painted on paper or cloth and framed with colored satin fabric. In the early years, because Tibetans lived a nomadic life and had no fixed place to live, fixed temples alone could not meet the religious needs of many believers who migrated indefinitely. Therefore, the Buddha statues painted on the Thangka, as a moving religious relic, replaced the statues in the temple and the murals on the wall, and became an object of worship that Tibetans can carry and worship. Tibetans can have a spiritual sustenance as long as they spread out the Tangka wrapped in a roll and hang it in tents for prayer and worship.
Because of the long painting time and the fact that many of the pigments used in Thangka painting are mineral pigments and contain some toxins, many painters are not very good in body and vision when they are about 50 years old, so an excellent painter can't draw a few Thangka in his life. Of course, thangka is not a painter with only painting skills who can draw casually, but has certain requirements. This requirement is not only the proficiency of painting skills, but also the painter's deep understanding of Tibetan Buddhism and the respect and fear of every holy image.
Painters rely on decades of Tangka painting skills to complete the vivid opening of the face with meticulous care. Therefore, for painters, a pair of Tangka is a practice. In addition, the pigments used by painters in painting are traditionally precious mineral stones such as gold and silver, pearls, agate, coral, pine stone, malachite and cinnabar, as well as plant raw materials such as saffron, realgar and indigo, Therefore, these natural pigments ensure the bright and dazzling color of Thangka.
In the auction of ancient Chinese works of art, the highest auction record is the HK $348 million set by Thangka, and the name of this pair of thangka is called "Ming Yongle royal red magic flute embroidery Thangka". On November 26, 2014, Liu Yiqian, the owner of Shanghai Dragon Art Museum, photographed it for HK $348 million. It is also known as the "king of Thangka". Although this Tibetan Thangka is said to have been baptized by years, it can still be displayed in gorgeous color in front of us. Therefore, thangka is known as the treasure of Chinese painting art and the Encyclopedia of Tibetans. Of course, it is also an intangible cultural heritage. The most expensive thangka is Thangka. The significance of good luck is incredible. Today, Thangka art is not only a painting art, but also in continuous development and inheritance. It continues to show its charm and has become an ancient art with the strongest characteristics in Tibet, China. We contemporary people should spread it and let more people know and understand it.
