Tibetan Art Cosmic Connections

Lama's Offering Cabinet

Starting at: $1,975.00

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 for details] Under the top overhang, the frame is carved in the rolling thunder or 'T' wave design. The two bottom-drawers have bronze ring pulls that come through a brass coin attached to the drawer's front. The front and both sides are painted with iconic Tibetan Buddhist designs, while the top is painted red. The cabinet has been dewaxed & treated with a finishing oil on the inside & the unpainted outside surfaces have been treated with an acrylic preservative. Comes with a brush signed Certificate Of Authenticity, iconography and other supporting documents.
