Baronet ~ Authentic Tibetan Monastic Art


Lhasa style Tibetan Buddhist altar

Starting at: $1,565.00

This altar's general theme is one of the truth that leads to enlightenment. The top creatively presents the 4 noble truths which leads to the Dharma; along with the sides the main flowers are lotus blossoms. The two ends where the drawers are dominated by the Precious General's insignia accompanied by coral and Cintamani helps to set the stage for proper understanding. Please refer to the iconography for details. This beautiful altar table was made for use in a Labrang (lama's residence) in central Tibet. When altars are painted on all 4 sides they are made to be placed in the center of a room with sufficient space to walk around. They were always circumambulated in a clockwise direction. This altar is painted on front, top, back, & both the right & left ends. This altar was never used and has been stored for decades; usually this results in a difficult cleaning: this altar was no exception with some wax and oil residue in various places. The only metal hardware on this piece are the brass Silk Road transit tax coins on the drawer-fronts at each end. This altar comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, a map of the Amdo region where the Sange monasteries are located and pictures of the lama that blessed this altar.
