    Unknown painting or tapestry of Buddhist scene. Unknown time frame or region. Excited when I found this beautiful piece.

      Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I didn't take it out of the frame so I know there is glare and yes it is dark. Thank you so much for the info

      It looks like a tourist thangka (Buddhist painting), probably made in Nepal. Many iconographical conventions used by traditional thangka painters are not found here, so I think this is intended more for decoration than as a shrine object. The design suggests a traditional mandala palace, the traditional dwelling of a Buddha, which is depicted from above, rather like a floor plan.
