Time-lapse video: Exploring the ageless beauty of Thangka

Thangka is Tibetan Buddhist scroll painting on cotton or silk with mineral and organic pigments derived from coral, agate, sapphire, pearl, gold, and others that help preserve the colors for centuries. The paintings date back to the 7th century and typically depict Buddhist deities.
