What involves the tibetan art tradition Thanka and in which ways does it vary? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Thanka är en tibetansk konsttradition som består av religiösa bilder föreställande en rad gudar och heliga personer ur den buddhistiska tron. Motiven är starkt symbolistiska och strängt traditionsbetingade. Detta arbete beskriver denna företeelse i tre delar där den första är hämtad ur litteratur, jag redogör här för uppkomsten, motiven, tekniken, de religiösa aspekterna och dagens plats. Den andra parten består av intervjuer och den tredje delen sammanfattar processen i den tavlan jag själv målat. Slutsatsen blir att denna konst är mycket komplex och tidskrävande, samt att den i sin lugna precision kontrasterar till den västerländska stressen. Kunskapen om thanka går att applicera i flera av skolans ämnen, så som Historia, Religion och Bild, på grund av sin av tradition befästa plats i det tibetanska samhället.

Abstract [en]

Thanka is a Tibetan art tradition which consists of religious pictures that portrays several gods, goddesses and holy individuals from the Buddhist faith. The motives are strongly symbolist and strictly traditional. This work describes this occurrence in three parts were the first is taken from literature; I give here an account of the origin, the motives, the technique, the religious aspects and its place today. The second part includes interviews and the third part summarizes the working process in my self-made painting. The conclusion is that this art is very complex and time-demanding, and that its calm precision is contrasting to the Western stress. The knowledge about Thanka is possible to apply in several school subjects such as History, Religion and Art, because of its traditional emplacement in the Tibetan society.
