Tibetan Buddhist High Lama's offering cabinet from a Labrang at the Senge Monastery. The overall theme of this cabinet's iconography is that of being an active Bodhisattva with the requisite Bodhichitta motivation. There is an interior shelf behind the two doors. The shelf is about 1/2 inch thick & made from Asian cedar planks. The two drawers at the bottom have leather pulls with 18th century coins used as the escutcheon. The door frames and the 'T' wave are done with 24kt gold, as well as the trim on the conch horns on the side panels. Both sides of this cabinet are painted with similar Buddhist symbols. The door-hinges & handles are solid brass. There is an interior shelf which was present in the Lama's offering cabinets from 1840 to about 1940. Comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity, brush signed by a monk at the Senge Monastery.
