Baronet ~ Authentic Tibetan Monastic Art


Lama's Offering Cabinet

Starting at: $1,695.00

"Bodhichitta Wisdom"

Tibetan Buddhist High Lama's offering cabinet from a Labrang at the Senge Monastery. The front doors feature leopards that are symbolic of wisdom and are tantric in their presentation. The overall theme of this cabinet's iconography is that of being an active Bodhisattva with the requisite Bodhichitta wisdom; helping others achieve the same status. 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. The top is not painted and is attached with bamboo pegs. Comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity, brush signed by a monk at the Senge Monastery. There is some slight kyungbur and paint loss on the right side legs at the very bottom, and the same with the left rear leg.
