Lineage Painting Sets make a up a substantial portion of Himalayan and Tibetan art. The two largest single groups of lineage painting sets are the Sakya Lamdre Lineage and the Karma Kagyu Mahamudra Lineage. The Karma Kagyu sets have been organized into a list and same set paintings grouped togther. Curently there are twenty-nine different sets identified on the HAR site. The first set has also been expanded into a custom page to re-construct the likely total number and order of the paintings.

The list below is linked to all of the Karma Kagyu Lineage painting sets. The majority of the sets have only a single painting known at this time. Some sets have multiple paintings such as sets 1 through 4, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19, and 28.
