Astamangala, established in 1979, is the only gallery in Holland specializing in ancient art and ethnographic objects from the Himalayan region. The main focus is on Buddhist art from Tibet, with a collection of
- thangkas ranging from the 12th to the beginning of the 20th century,
- bronzes, with an emphasis on the earlier styles (till the 17th century),
- ritual objects,
- textiles and rugs, etc.
Included are of course objects from countries like Bhutan and Mongolia.
Besides Himalayan art we also offer a wide range in Nepalese and Indian art. Especially bronzes, miniature-paintings on paper (15th-19th century) and textiles.
