One of the few Tibetan stores in the the capital city, A-Bu-Ni-Gong offers a unique opportunity to shop for fascinating and beautiful handicrafts and accessories from the high mountains of Tibetan.
The store carries a variety of Tibetan everyday products, like exquisite Tibetan fox fur hats, colorful prayer flags, rosaries, and prayer wheels. They also have beautifully handcrafted jewelry in silver, turquoise, and other semi-precious stones. Prices start at dozens of Yuan for small accessories, and rise to upward of tens of thousands of Yuan for an exquisite Thangkas. Thangkas is a Buddhist art painting done on a homemade cotton or silk canvas, seeking protection and good luck from the Buddha.
The owners are a couple from Tibet ¡°We are born in Tibetan culture, we live with it, it is part of our life,¡± they told me, ¡°It is the aesthetic appeal of the products that drags people in.¡± They want to use the store to help promote the Tibetan culture and their way of life.
