Dec. 22, 2017 -- A third party has been introduced to Regong, the home of Tibetan paintings, to establish a quality tracking system for Thangka paintings.

Regong art from Qinghai province, was listed by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2009.

An infrared spectrometer is used to analyze mineral pigments used in Thangka paintings. A quick scanning of QR codes will enable people to get the basic information about the authors, qualities and preservation methods. 

Masters of Tibetan Thangka art have also been invited to evaluate the Thangka paintings.
