An exhibition of Tibetan Buddhist Art organized by the People's Government of the Huangnan Tibetan autonomous prefecture, Qinghai province, officially kicked off on Friday in the Shaanxi History Museum in Xi'an, capital of Shaanxi province.


In the seventh century AD, Buddhism went into Tibet and gradually formed Tibetan Buddhism by combining with the local religion Bon. Then Tibetan Buddhism art also came into being. After the 15th century Tibetan Buddhism art bloomed with the flourishing of Tibetan Buddhism. The art includes murals, Tangka, clay sculpture, wood carving, butter sculpture and stone sculpture.


At the exhibition, 130 works of art are on display and most of the art works were created by State-level masters of national intangible cultural heritage.


The exhibition will end on July 20 and is free to the public.
