Tigers appear on Tibetan furniture in Eastern Tibet with greater frequency than anywhere else in Tibet and were reserved for use by Lamas. The tiger offers wisdom, insight and protection to the meditational practitioner and this tiger is very happy to oblige. This two-door, two-drawer offering cabinet, the traditional Tibetan furniture of the Tibetan Lama has a convenient shelf behind the two doors. The kyungbur on the outside frame is the trademark Sange (Wutun) monastery's zigzag. [please read the iconography in the main listing
