Department of Tibetan Traditional Painting

Department of Fine Arts was established in 2008 to preserve and promote the Cultural Heritage of Tibetan Arts and Tibetan traditional fine arts, which are deeply rooted in Buddhism.

History
The origin of Tibetan arts of making tools, buildings and other necessary equipments goes back to the reign of Tibetan King Nyatri Tsenpo (27 BC).

It is said that the formal arts based on Buddhism came into light during the 28th King Lha-tho-ho ri-nyen-tsen. Later in the 7th century, Tibetan arts developed with the royal matrimony with the Kings of Nepal and China. With the marriage of Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo to the princesses of Nepal and China had played a vital role in spread of Buddhism and Buddhist based arts in Tibet.

The emperor Trisong Detsen, invited many Indian Buddhist scholars to Tibet and with their help built the first ever Buddhist monastery in Tibet, which had blended architectural styles of India, Tibet and China. With this developed the art of making idols and drawing the scroll and wall painting of the Buddha, the deities and the greats Buddhist masters of India and Tibet.

From these different styles of fine arts, Tibetans have developed their own traditions of style. Later they are known by the tradition of Men-Lug (sman lugs), Khen-Lug (mKhan Lugs) and Karma Gardis (karma sgar bris).
