Tibetan Art Cosmic Connections

Tibetan Buddhist Altar

Starting at: $4,585.00

Masterfully painted altar with excellent detail, an uncommon piece painted by the 19th centuries most accomplished artistic group at the Senge Monasteries. We had a mate to this altar, which we sold about 10 years ago. Each door features six of the Eight Auspicious Symbols, although only 5 are stacked on the Ashoka blossom pad. The background behind the symbols is set in the pure lands and richly detailed, with each door different than the other. The drawers and the door pull are done in kyungbur, while the frame is decorated with durva grass, one of the Bringers of Good Fortune, Ashoka blossoms, chrysanthemum blossoms and lotus blossoms. The sides feature a muscular Snow Lion holding an alms bowl over his head filled with Cintamani, and bael fruit, all set in the pure lands. The top is painted red and shows signs of water-offerings being placed there as well as yak butter lamps. The two doors open and there are two drawers below those doors. The drawer pulls are leather with a circa 1750 Chinese coin as the escutcheon. This altar comes with an iconography and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by one of the monks.
