Tibetan Art Cosmic Connections

Lama's Offering Cabinet

Starting at: $1,425.00

Excellent and vibrant art work employing a plethora of Tibetan Buddhist symbols on this offering shrine made for use in a Lama's residence. Every door and panel is striking with rich colors and meaningful symbols. The lute on the upper left and right panels have the typical green sound board; the lotus blossom on the upper doors have full bodied petals and long stems signifying a practitioner well above the muck of materialism. The Peacocks on the lower doors symbolize transmuting poisons into amrita or the nectar of healing and long life. Please see the iconography in the main listing for more details about this beautiful cabinet. The door-pulls are the vertical center-divider and open with the right hand door 1st which is typical of Tibetan cabinetry. The two drawers below the doors have an 16th or 17th century Chinese brass coin as the pull. The top, back & both sides are natural wood. This cabinet is very well done, the kyungbur is excellently applied with a steady smooth hand. The art work is very clean and crisp, of exceptional quality. The cabinet has been cleaned and treated with preservatives, both the painted surfaces and the unpainted wood. The art work is excellent along with the kyungbur which is smooth and well applied.

This cabinet was never used, it was made after a devastating attack in 1928 in which more than 1/2 of the village residents and monastery monks and lamas were killed by Muslim's that were being paid by the severed head to kill Buddhists. In one village close to Senge, every male inhabitant was killed. The residences were also partially destroyed along with some of the art work and furniture.

This cabinet comes with a brush-signed Certificate of Authenticity (which will be mailed from Reunion Island): the iconography/meditational aid (which will arrive as a PDF via email).
