Newari Tara

The best-known genre of pictorial art in Nepal is the painting on cotton cloth called Pata in Sanskirt, Paubha in Newari and Thangka in Tibetan. A large number of temple banners of this kind appear abruptly in the 14th century and the fact that their style and format is comparatively sophisticated and uniform suggests that they represent the continuation of an earlier tradition that is not represented by any surviving examples.
