Tibet Shop specialising in Tibetan Art & Crafts. Thangka.co.uk is a small online family business, run by Ugyen Choephell, himself an artist for more than 30 years now. Tibetan Thangka Painting is a precise art form which takes years of apprenticeship and study. Particularly focussed on iconography. Artists learn direct from Master artists in an unbroken tradition passed down through the years. Paintings are spiritual items as well as works of art. All items are fairly traded from the Himalayas, and the aim is to help keep these traditions alive by supporting artists.
