Jonang Thangkas

Jonang Foundation's collection of thangkas for purchase represent the major deities and lineage figures of the Jonang tradition. Each thangka in our collection was selected and digitally reprinted from the greater corpus of Jonang lineage art, and is being made available here.

Thangkas are 3 ft. high x 2 ft. wide acrylic prints with a maroon, gold, and deep blue border. The Jonang Foundation insignia and title is printed in Tibetan, English, and Chinese along the bottom. Each thangka is delivered with a custom-fit box for protection.
