Baronet ~ Authentic Tibetan Monastic Art


Lama's Offering Cabinet

Starting at: $1,565.00

The general theme of this beautifully decorated Tibetan Buddhist offering cabinet is acquiring the wisdom, life thoughts and actions that lead to becoming a Bodhichitta. The doors have two of the three holy flowers of Tibetan Buddhism, the Lotus and the Champaka, the latter always reminds me of fireworks. The upper panels have a grand Auspicious Treasure jar topped out with flaming Cintamani (jewels of wisdom), the lower panels adjacent to the Champaka doors has an ornate offering bowl filled with Cintamani and precious gold coral, all sitting on top of fine linen draped over leopard skins (representing wisdom). I have included some meditational aids in the iconography that comes with this cabinet. The art work is good as is the raised out-lining (kyungbur). The hinges of the doors are wood-pegs in the doors that fit into a hole in the underside of the top and slide into a groove on the horizontal frame. The door-pull is the vertical kyungbur-trim in the center of the two doors. The front trim is kyungbur (raised gesso) in a maroon and gold zigzag design. The sides, back and top are a natural wood; the original oil and wax finish which has been cleaned and a danish finishing oil applied to help preserve the wood. The top is attached with wood pegs, the rest of the frame is mortise and tendon joinery. The wood is predominately Asian Cedar, with some pine, spruce and possibly elm thrown into the mix. Comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity. We have cleaned and treated the interior and exterior wood, (top, back and all sides) as well as cleaning the painted surfaces, which we have coated with a clear non-yellowing preservative.

This cabinet comes with a brush-signed Certificate of Authenticity (mailed from Reunion Island): the following will be emailed in PDF; the iconography/meditational aid and images of the Living Buddha that blessed this cabinet when we took possession of it.
