Bhutan's Colorful Art

June 08, 2012

Visiting beautiful Bhutan and it's colorful culture

One of the great joys of visiting Bhutan, an exotic kingdom in the midst of the Himalayas, is enjoying the culture and colorful art. This pristine and deeply Buddhist land is no ordinary place. Daily prayer is a constant part of life, traditional clothing ( a tunic called gho for men and kera for women ) is worn at work and school, breathtaking scenery surrounds you, and the unique Bhutanese architecture plus the phallic art is like no where else on earth.

I love the bright colors of the art, like in this Buddha mural made of cloth. It is such a contrast to the earthy shades of nature that envelopes you there. Art is just part of life in Bhutan,  as every building, every house, every temple is a hand-painted work of art.

These holy Buddhist paintings are a Tibetan tradition and they are called Thangkas (the h is silent).

This is an image of the historic Buddha, Sakyamuni.
