Last updated by Journey at 2014/5/9

The Garma Town, 120 kilometers from Chamdo County, is the centre of Chamdo's fine craftsmanship. According to the records a local craftsman called Tuirichang designed the Garma monastery in 1185. Therefore, the painting in this area has covered a history of 700 to 800 years. The style of painting known as "Garshog" was developed in the mid 16th century; taking in elements of inland Chinese landscape style, and this became one of the most important branches of Tangka painting in Tibet. The style features compact composition, bold lines, fine detailed clothing, vivid facial expressions and bright colors. Artists here are famous for their paintings of flowers, trees and plants, mountains and waterfalls as well as for their portraits of the Buddha.
