Hi Leith,
they are Tibetan Artists. The spelling varies.
They paint on a stretched canvas that looks as if it were a skin on a drying frame.
Very intricate sometimes using a brush with only a couple of hairs.

They traditionally painted for both education and spiritual.

Nice – yes I will love to see it when it’s painted.
Perhaps I should make me a wonderful thing like that for my water colors (aquarel).
Best thoughts,
Mads

Will it be used as a stool also?
Or is it for stuff only.

Thanks Mads,
yes to stand on as well, hence the thick plywood.
The board at the side is a slip in front with a rest for paper.
The bottom drawer is going to be with layers for brushes.
i don’t take a picture of it closed as when she gets back from Germany she is going to paint the exterior.
Then I will get a photo of it.

A very nice project, & I looked at that type of painting.

It’s very intricate, & beautiful.
