Buddhist Thangas

          Ram Bdr. Lama - Photo taken on our vacation to Chitwan Nat'l Park in Nepal

4COTW searched high and low for Thangka artists in Nepal. Of course, we found many. If you know Thangkas (yes, this is the Nepali spelling and it is pronounced in Nepal as "tang-ka") you'll understand that these works can take up to 3-6 months to produce, and that some are painted with pure gold. Yet, the challenge we had was to find a master that produced the most perfect pieces. Ram Bdr. Lama was by far the best we encountered. Reviewing four thangkas with a fine-toothed comb, we could reveal no mistakes. He takes amazing care in his shop's production and we feel this is the very best source around for Buddhist thangkas of pure gold. I also had the opportunity to ride motorcycle across Nepal with Ram Bdr. Lama and his wife, and we vacationed at Chitwan National Park. 4COTW proudly presents the thangka art of Ram Bdr. Lama.

Welcome to 4CornersOfTheWorld, a representation of people and arts of Tibet and Nepal. Here's how we work. We travel to the exotic lands, and meet and greet with the top artists around. On location, we usually buy what we feel are the best pieces of art from that individual. We also photograph the artist, record his/her inspirations and/or photograph their homes and communities. This enables two things to happen. First, buyers seeking authentic art from these most peaceful and alluring locations now have a place to find and purchase arts, as well as share in the origins of their purchases. Secondly, it serves to promote these talented masters and open a new outlet for sharing and exporting their works. The vast majority of profits (85%) are returned to the artists or their villages. Our goal is to be a catalyst for these remote talents gaining the visibility and financial support they deserve.

To be completely open with our business practices, I must say that profits from incense and teas are the revenue generating portion of our business. And although our prices are great, this wholesale and internet sale of these items is what keeps us growing and expanding.

So thanks, and enjoy your shopping experience. and if you decide to purchase any merchandise, please contact us at:
