More than 40 paintings of yaks produced by Tibet's famous yak painter Meng Fanhua went on display Tuesday in Tibet’s Folk Art Museum in Lhasa.

Ink painting is China’s traditional art which began in the ancient Tang Dynasty (618-907) and prospered during the Song (960-1279) and Yuan (1271-1368) dynasties, but the art is fading today.

The seven-day event was hosted by the region’s cultural department and the Federation of Literary and Art Circle, and co-hosted by the region's folk art museum and the artists association.
