Thangkas are religious paintings. And the dozens of them that fill five levels of open gallery space make for a scenic ascent. Demonic bruisers in tiger-skin briefs flex and snarl. Gods putt around on clouds or have sex or dance little jigs en pointe. A conclave of lamas, monks and sages has a floor all to itself. Some look like bankers, others like eggheads, still others seem spacey or slightly cracked, not unlike the average crowd on a New York street.
Q : What does "the dozens make for a scenic ascent" mean?
All the best,
