These woven works of art, using Himalayan style paintings as a model, were created on a loom and primarily manufactured in China from the 13th century up to the early 20th century.

There are too many good examples of Woven tangkas in this gallery which makes it almost impossible to create a separate masterworks page. So, this gallery will also serve as the Woven Textile Masterworks Page.
