I'm not an expert but this does not look like a Buddhist thangka. 

It contains none of the figurative representations common in thangkas, such asbuddha or bodhisattva figures, nor does it contain lotus flowers or other symbols associated with Buddhism.

It looks like a Tibetan-style carpet created in the Art Nouveau manner.

Hope this helps.
