Baronet ~ Authentic Tibetan Monastic Art

Lhasa Style tibetan Buddhist Altar

Starting at: $1,695.00

The Tibetan Buddhist altar's iconic theme is that overcoming the delusions and igonorance through following the correct path while experiencing a long healthy life. There is an iconography available as a meditation aid for this altar, see below. 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 item is painted on front, top,  back, & both the right & left ends. This altar was never used and has been stored for decades, this has taken a small toll on the art work as the large variances in temperatures have had an adverse effect and made effective cleaning very difficult. The top is exquisitely painted, featuring an ornate Tse Bum, which is a special jar containing the long life elixir. The front and back feature a full blooming Ashoka Blossom.   The only metal hardware on this piece are the Chinese brass coins (circa 1700) and round pull on the drawer-fronts at each end. The Tibetan Buddhist altar comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, an iconography explaining the theme and meanings of the various icons, a map of the Amdo region where the Sange monasteries are located.
