Kali Thangka - Ghau Thangka
Ghau is a portable shrine in which an image of the owner's personal deity (Ishta Devata) is kept wrapped in silk cloth. Most Tibetans used Ghau at home and during traveling. At home, it is kept on alter but when traveling it is fastened at the cross belt. Generally, Ghau has trefoil shapes and a window in the middle through which one can see the personal deity. Ghau is made of two parts that fit together to form a box. The back is usually left plain and the front is richly decorated.
This beautiful Ghau Thangka is hand-made by the master artisans of Nepal, which lies in the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. These master artists have been working from generation and generation.
