Tapestry - Textile - Giant Silk Applique
The Norbu Drabje is 40 mt x 2 mt. (120 ft x 8 ft) and is a replacement of lost heritage for Tsurphu Monastery, Tibet (1187 ad) My husband Terris Nguyen Temple and I completed this 1997 with 6 Tibetan women tailors. A video of its making is available at youtube.com/ templeartstudios. This work is now at the monastery and being used in ceremonies as it was prior to the Cultural Revolution. We are now fundraising for another 40 mt applique for the next Tibetan heritage replacement.
