A Thankga will usually represent one of the 350 deities in Tibetan Buddhism, each imagery will have their own set of rules on depicting the gods, its colour, position, artefacts and other subjects associated with them. Deviating from these rules is not allowed as the paintings should reflect first and foremost the spiritual message. There is only room for personal artistic expression in the landscapes and various ornaments surrounding the paintings.
