The vision of my gallery is to bring people into contact with the rich lamaist arts of the Himalayan region, Tibet and Mongolia. My particular effort is to collaborate with tibetologists and Tibetan lamas in order to reveal the purport of thankas and make it understood. Additionally, on occasion I organize public lectures on interesting and current topics that relate to the objects of my gallery.
