The Tsakli are a series of antique paintings that originated from Tibetan Buddhism. These paintings were created as miniature pieces, normally in thematic sets, and were used as initiation cards in rituals. The Tsakli were painted by hand and were often accompanied by a narrative that was written on the same page as the image.

These antique paintings were typically produced in sets, with each set consisting of six to nearly 100 small paintings that depicted similar subjects. The Tsakli sets were used as offerings in temples or in rituals, and their purpose was to aid in the process of spiritual awakening and development.

Each Tsakli painting was carefully crafted with intricate details and vibrant colors, using traditional painting techniques that have been passed down through generations of Tibetan Buddhist artists. The themes of the paintings could vary widely, ranging from depictions of deities, mandalas, animals, and other symbolic representations.

Today, Tsakli sets are highly valued and sought after by collectors and art enthusiasts around the world. These antique paintings offer a unique glimpse into the rich cultural and spiritual heritage of Tibetan Buddhism, and serve as a testament to the skill and creativity of the artists who created them.

Please note: Painting will be shipped in a custom mat with no frame.
