Exceptional art work on this altar that expresses the most direct path to lenlightenment. Rams grace each front door; in the background are rugged rock cliffs and a rainbowed representation of subtle energy. The sides have a wonderfully colorful Dharma Wheel that couples well with the four petaled flower on the top. The top is in the layered look which is more favored by the monks at the lower Sange monastery. This table comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Kha Sang, a Tibetan Buddhist Monk at the Wutun Monastery. The door-pull is the vertical trim ornamented in gesso at the center of the two doors. The top, front, and both sides are hand-painted and the attention to detail is exceptional. The only metal hardware on this piece are the brass coins on the drawer fronts. The hinges of the 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 base. The wood is Asian cedar solids. The trim is done in the gesso (kyungbur) technique that dominates Tibetan Buddhist art and is a hall mark of the Sange artists.
