Thangka is a Buddhist paintings on cotton, silk, canvas, usually despiciting Buddhist deities, scene, or mandala. Thangkas are traditionally kept unframed and rolled up when not display, mounted on a textile backing somewhat in the style of Chinese scroll paintings. Images of deities can be used as teaching tools when depicting the life of the Buddha, describing historical events concerning important Lamas, or retelling myths associated with other deities. Overall, and perhaps most importantly, religious art is used as a meditation tool to help bring one further down the path to enlightenment.

More information about Wheel of Life Tibetan Thangka Painting 17.5" W x 21.5" H

Commonly referred to as the "wheel of life" this classical image from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition depicts the psychological states, or remain of existence, associated with the enlightened state. A powerful mirror for spiritual aspirants, the wheel of deluded existence is often painted to the left of Tibetan monastery doors.
 
At, the center of the mandala, the intewined images of a pig, a rooster and a snake symbolically depict the ignorance, greed and agression that characterize the worlds of suffering and dissatisfaction which Buddhist called Samsara. Surrounding the central figures are five concentric rings of attendant deities or in the case of these thangkas, their symbolic equivalents. At, the intermediate points of the compass are four skull cups supported by vases and containing seminal essences, blood, five ambrosinal nectars and the five awakening.
