We interviewed two teachers about on this subject.
Ask:Good afternoon,teacher Zhao,and treacher Yang,would you please give us a brief account of Duixiu.
Answer:Duixiu is one of the arts that the Tibetan temples are famous for.It is a sort of Thangka that is a kind of scroll painting mounted on silk.It is done with silk thread of different colors, depicting landscapes, figures, flowers, feathers, pavilions and towers.
Ask:What is the distinguishing feature of the Duixiu?
Answer:Duixiu are made of colorful silk-fabric cuttings. These cuttings in the shape of Buddha, man, flower, plant, bird, wild animal, insect, fish etc. are sewn on a large silk fabric, in-between stuffed with wool, cotton or other woolly materials, to achieve three-dimensional effect. They constitute a dazzling silk gallery. Artists of appliques pay particular attention to projecting the lines and contours of an individual figure. This fully demonstrates the artistic style and skill of Tibetan culture.
