You are looking at a traditional style of painting from Dolpa, Nepal. This is called a Thangka painting or scroll painting. This artist is Pasang Nurbu. Nurbu hails from a lineage of painters dating back four hundred years, and was trained by his father in the refined art of traditional thangka painting. In addition to his classical talent, Nurbu is infusing the thangka genre with vivid images of pastoral landscapes and life ways. This landscape is of his homeland and everyday life at the Dralung Monastery. His inspiration comes from family, historical books, legends and memories of Dolpo including visions and dreams he has had. He strives to capture movement and give life to the figures and integrate the culture and tradition of Dolpo into the paintings. Even the smallest details such as body postures and clothing reflect pieces of the culture. This piece is framed in a wood frame that is painted gold. The frame is in solid good condition however there are some nicks in the paint here and there. The piece has a double mat board over it and the glass in the frame appears to be glare resistant. I do not know the framer or exact date it painted or framed. This piece is vintage and may not be perfect. The frame measures 16 inches tall, 19 5/8 inches side to side and 1 inch front to back. It weighs 5 pounds.
