Frescos Mural

 

Frescos are a universal feature of temples and monasteries in Tibet. There are over 200 in Jokhang Monastery alone, covering an area of 300 square meters. The painters followed strict rules. For instance, the Buddha must be solemn, and his body must be depicted in certain specific proportions. Historical and folklore themes abound in murals, and the paints used are similar to those used for Thanka painting.
