Art made in Tibet by Tibetan monks

Chosom stand

Starting at: $1,525.00

A late 19th century Chosum stand AKA yak butter lamp stand with an iconic theme towards acquiring wisdom that leads to enlightenment. Golden dragons clutching a flaming gold torma instead of the usual jewel are set to help the practitioner cast out poisons and delusion and replace them with enlightened wisdom. The sides and in particular the left side enhances this theme with the obvious leopard skins (symbolizing wisdom) under a stack of Cintamani, which are jewels of wisdom. The drawers are above the doors with 17th century Chinese coins as the backing for the pulls, featuring Mahamudra Mists. Please see iconography in main listing for more details. The artwork is outstanding, especially the kyungbur outlining and detailing the dragons. The entire piece is completely done in kyungbur (the raised gesso outlining). The Chösum stand is painted on both sides and the front, the top and back are not painted. This style evolved over the centuries, with the widening to two doors happening at the end of the 19th century. This Chösum stand comes with an iconography and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by one of the monks. For historical information about this piece purchase the book "The Golden Valley; The Untold Story of the Other Cultural Center of Tibet"
