The artist was definitely thinking outside of the box when he designed this torma trunk; it is a unique piece, well painted with masterfully mixed colors. I particularly love the sides with the Treasure vase's window on enlightenment. The symmetrical designs used are quite different than any other trunk. The design is predominately floral with the exception of the sides where a coral offering is made and Cintamani and Chakravartin's Precious eight-faceted flaming jewel, the King's earrings and his Precious Elephant are presented along with the treasure vase. The Four Noble truths are the main theme, presented in varying forms on all facets of the Antique Tibetan Torma trunk. The Chrysanthemum border is painted over 24kt gold; note there is some color and gold loss as cleaning was very difficult on that part of the design. The handles on the sides and the lid's closure is brass. The copper cladding on the corners is a late 20th century addition. This trunk comes with a brush-sign Certificate of Authenticity signed by one of the monks at the Sange Monastery. There is also a map of the area, along with historical notes and pictures of the village and monasteries with explanations and other documentation.
