Hung's Arts Foundation

Just glance into the vivid brick-red world of thangka and you will never remove your stare. Executive director Serena Hung fell in love with the rich world of Thangka when she first saw the Vajrapani Mahachakra Thangka. Serena witnessed the level of devotion that the Tibetan Monk artists put into their work at Robin Museum in New York. She was moved by the dedication and the years it took to complete a single thangka. That dedication and the rich concepts expressed through the graphics of the unique Tibet religious art still touch and calm her heart.
  Two Sakya Lamas
Central Tibet, 15th Century

These two seated Sakya Lamas can be identified by their inscriptions. The left lama with white hair is Dge-ldan Yong-gzhi. He is older and has a dark-blue nimbus surrounding his head. The right lama is the young Na-bzav-brag-phug-pa with a red nimbus surrounding his head.
