Thangka

Thangka

Thangka denotes Buddhist religious scroll paintings that are mounted with colorful satin fabrics and hung for worship. It is a unique and highly specialized form of art in Tibetan culture and its content touches every aspect of Tibetan history from the political, cultural and social life.

Often Thangka paintings are created through the ingenious use of materials such as gold, silver, pearl, agate etc. and plants like saffron and rhubarb. These natural dyes and elements lend themselves to a vibrant and noteworthy set of colours and patterns that can be displayed and enjoyed for hundreds of years without change. It is with this in mind that Thangka art is so sought after and protect as both a means of preserving the past as well as detailing historical influences. Eliciting thought, conversation and discourse, Origo Club seeks to engage all willing to learn through an interactive cultural experience. While we may be known as a French fine dining establishment, we would also love to highlight our efforts to preserve and showcase the treasures within our Art Gallery and contemporary spaces. We celebrate heritage by transcending cultural boundaries.
