Thanka painting is an ancient art tradition from Tibet. Although this style was originally Buddhist, it has influenced and been adapted by other cultures, such as the Newar culture. Each painting shown here is hand-painted in the authentic tradition and can be made to order-usually at no extra charge. If you see a painting you’d like to have, but is shown in too muted or bright colors, or maybe you need to match your decor, we can have it made to order, just let us know.
Our singing and healing bowls come in a variety of sizes and qualities from the decorative singing bowl to hand crafted healing bowls and even the special 8 metal, healing bowls specially crafted under the full moon.

Our metal statue factory is located in Patan. The workers come from families who have done this kind of work for many generations. This ancient tradition includes the traditional eight metals, or just brass, copper or other metal.
