Tibetan Art Cosmic Connections


Lama's Offering Cabinet

$1,475.00

Nicely painted piece of Tibetan furniture with plenty of Buddhist symbols. The art work is good as is the raised out-lining (kyungbur). The two upper panels next to the Pheasant are the four petaled flower symbolic of the Four Noble Truths. The bottom doors have the Auspicious Parasol surrounded by Mahamudra Mists. I have included some meditational aids in the iconography that comes with this cabinet. The hinges of the 4 doors are wood-pegs in the doors that fit into a hole in the underside of the top and slide into a groove on the horizontal frame. The door-pull is the vertical kyungbur-trim in the center of the two doors and as is characteristic of Tibetan furniture, opens with the right hand door. Chinese cabinets open with the left had door. The front trim is kyungbur (raised gesso) in a red and gold zigzag design. There are two drawers at the bottom with 18th century Chinese coins as the backing for the drawer pull. The sides, back and top are a natural wood with the original oil and wax finish which has been cleaned and a danish finishing oil applied to help preserve the wood. The top is attached with wood pegs, the rest of the frame is mortise and tendon joinery. The wood is predominately Asian Cedar, with some pine, spruce and possibly elm thrown into the mix. Asian cedar, an aromatic wood, naturally repels insects and is the wood used to to send prayers to the Wind or prayer horse. We have cleaned and treated the interior and exterior wood, (top, back and all sides) as well as cleaning the painted surfaces, which we have treated with a clear non-yellowing preservative.

This cabinet comes with a brush-signed Certificate of Authenticity (mailed from Reunion Island): the following will be emailed in PDF; the iconography/meditational aid and images of the lama that blessed the shrine.
