Painted in the Thanka style by Hishey Bhutia. The thankha came to Sikkim from Tibet. It is a painted scroll depicting religious deities, demons and the lives of avatars. The hues imitate old thankhas in vegetable colours. The artist uses secular motifs to reflect the arts and crafts of Sikkim. The eight lucky symbols on the second side are in the mural painting style with kimbur, raised gold work, to add an element of ornate embellishment.
