A immersive 360 virtual reality documentary, following traditional Thangka artists right through to modern practices. Showing the importance of Thangka art for Tibetan Buddhist mediation.

In this documentary we visit a modern Thangka art factory and see how it is becoming available to a wider audience. The master, invites us into his traditional Tibetan home and we can see where the Thangka art originated from.

We also visit a modern Thangka art school which also houses traditional Thangka art gallery and museum of important Chinese cultural history. This also shows us how Thangka art is moving with the times and allowing its first female artist to keep the traditional art alive.

We finish with a Tibetan Buddhist temple high in the mountains are can see how the Thangka art is important to the mediation of monks as it surrounds their daily life.
