MANUSCRIPT COVERS~~When I first saw these manuscript covers I figured that it was something that you could put on a wall and reverse it for a change as they have deities on one side and the 6-syllable mantra on the other. Never did it enter my mind that these were manuscript covers; hey, they are way too large for that! When I was given a tour of the archival libraries of one of the monasteries in the Golden Valley I saw that they were infact manuscript covers as there were several of them up on the higher shelves. This size dates back to the 13th century and they are typically painted on the inside with canonical depictions according to the content of the book.

The following items of art are totally unique to the Sange Monasteries. This genre of art on boards is not recorded in any book or reference materials I have been able to find. They are all made at the Sange Monasteries and as far as i know are the only existing forms of this Tibetan Art. I had thought that they may have been originally made as doors for other Tibetan Furniture, but saw no signs of the pegging for hinges. They may have been used in the fronts of altars inside of the temples, but I again saw no signs that these had ever been placed inside of an altar frame. These have been viewed by a representative of the Tibetan government that is familiar with the monasteries and he confirms that these are indeed from the monasteries and he likewise has never seen this genre of Tibetan art before. I have a few older paintings of this genre, dating to the 13th century that i will make available later once restorations have been completed. The exact history or explanation of these was probably lost forever during the tumultuous 1950s and 60s when many monks and lamas lost their lives. Our best speculation as to the nature of this unique genre is that they were painted as part of the teaching at the Sange Monasteries, especially since they are basically the royal art academies of Tibetan Buddhism.
