Baronet ~ Authentic Tibetan Monastic Art

Lama's Offering Cabinet

Starting at: $1,365.00

The general theme of this Tibetan Buddhist offering cabinet, AKA a shrine, is understanding the 4 noble truths, which then lead to the 8 fold noble path while accomplishing virtuous acts; this allows one to reach the highest state of reality, enlightenment. I have included some meditational aids in the iconography that comes with this cabinet. The peacock on the upper right panel is beautifully done, with plumes in 24kt gold. The two upper doors have the Precious General's Insignia, the bottom drawers have Dharma Wheels with yin-yang symbols at their hubs. 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, map of the area with short history, and pictures of the area, people, their homes and essays about their lifestyle and economy.
