The thangka is a scroll image (whether painted, embroidered, woven, glued or printed) of Tibetan Buddhism and is hung in temples or home altars for meditation and carried in processions. The thangkas mainly depict tantric deities, Buddhas, bodhisattvas, tutelary deities, lamas, stories from life, kalachakras (wheel of life) and mandalas.
