Tradition Transformed: Tibetan Artists Respond

Hood Quarterly, autumn/winter 2010-11
25th Anniversary Issue

There is no Tibetan equivalent for the word “art” as it is defined in the West.

The closest approximation is lha dri pa—literally, “to draw a deity.” Traditionally, neither the Tibetan language nor the Tibetan cultural framework has recognized art for art’s sake, and an artist’s efficacy rests in his ability to precisely replicate an established visual language and portray the essence of a particular deity.
