Walking the bodhichitta path with like minded bodhisattvas is the general theme of this expertly painted Buddhist offering cabinet. This two-door, two-drawer offering cabinet has an interior shelf for added storage. The traditional Tibetan furniture of a Tibetan Lama has the 6-syllable mantra of Avalokiteshvara "Om Mani Padme Hum" done in 24kt gold kyungbur in the Tibetan Holy text along with an Auspicious conch shell horn sitting upon an Ashoka blossom throne. The sides have a precious offering of red coral over a thought provoking painting of a lotus blossom framed in cliffs representing the holy scriptures and Mahamudra mists as the enlightened compasionate (bodhichitta) heart. The kyungbur on the outside frame is the trademark Sange (Wutun) monastery's zigzag. 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 bronze coin attached to the drawer's front. 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.
