Mar. 24, 2014 -- A Thangka painting exhibition which possesses one thousand Tibetan Thangka is currently under preparation in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of NW China's Gansu Province, People's Daily reported on March 10.

 

The exhibition aims to showcase the unique Tibetan painting to the world, according to Kelsang SangmoTen Gyatso, a professor from the Labrang Monma Bao Thangka Exhibition Center in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.
