The top of this piece of Tibetan furniture is set in the pure lands; an unusual offering bowl holds the representations of all five sense objects in a striking depiction. The front and back feature a rock cliff in a HUM (single syllable mantra that denotes determination) simularca with cosmic energy radiating to the cosmos and earth simultaneously. The ends have a gold offering bowl; thematically this Tibetan altar is all about giving unselfishly, helping others; it is a great and Godly place to have your nimd and being. This nicely painted piece of Tibetan furniture was made for use in a Labrang (lama's residence) in Tibet.

They were always circumambulated in a clockwise direction. This altar is painted on front, top, back, & both the right & left ends and was made at the Sange or Wutun AKA Wutong Monastery in Qinghai AKA Amdo region in eastern Tibet. Comes with COA, iconography and other supporting documents.
