Thanka Painting is a ritual Art, basically its related to Vajrayana cult of Mahayana Buddhism. It has 2 basic schools Newari Thanka or Paubha Art, and Tibetan Thanka art. Newari Thanka art can also be for Hindu Deities also.

To paint a Thanka an artist has to be initiated into the ritual art by the masters, who are mainly monks. A dedication of almost a decade is needed to the born artist for the dedication and meditation in his or her work. The quality depends upon the artists skill and labor and to paint a thanka, a couple of months work is considered less.
