The thanka style of painting is used in Sikkim. It came to Sikkim from Tibet. It is a painted scroll depicting religious deities, demons and the lives of avatars. This map uses secular motifs to reflect the arts and crafts of Sikkim. The eight lucky symbols on the second side are in the mural painting style with kimbur, raised gold work, to add an element of ornate embellishment.
