Over the years I’ve had the privilege of framing lots of Tibetan Buddhist art. Known as tangkas, these beautiful paintings hang in temples and monasteries all over Tibet and Nepal. This particular piece is known as White Tara, goddess of Buddhist enlightenment. We used a large gold moulding with a leaf pattern that coordinates with the painting. We then used silk mats and a gold filet. We used Oriental mat proportions, which is a type mat design that makes mat is wider on the top and bottom and thinner on the sides.
This second two examples are frames I did for the Rubin Museum of Art in New York.
