Tibetan Art Cosmic Connections

Tibetan torma trunk

Starting at: $889.00

All painted surfaces of this antique Tibetan Buddhist torma trunk are striking, with excellent fine line detail complimenting the stunning renderings of Tibetan Buddhist symbols. The border of flowers is comprised of blue and red Chrysanthemums, it surrounds the front's idiosyncratically stunning 4 Nobel Truths synchronizing with the 8 Fold Noble Path. This rendering is nontraditional, yet still captures the essence of the symbolism in a fresh, original way. The sides have an Auspicious Victory Banner, one of the 8 Auspicious symbols. The top has a summer dragon holding a Cintamani in his right front foot as the other feet are ready to grasp the blue Cintamani. There is great symbolism on this trunk, while it is presented in uncharacteristic style on the front. Please take time to read the iconography to get an understanding of the richness of karmic thought that comes with this trunk. The handles on the sides and the lid's closure are brass. The copper cladding on the corners is a late 20th century addition. The back has brass hinges that have propensity to break if the trunk is not opened with care. There is some damage to the dragon depiction at his left shoulder going into the dragon's flame-ribbon. The trunk has been cleaned as it had a layer of soot and wax on it which obscured the painting detail, after cleaning the painted parts were coated with a clear acrylic enamel to protect the painted surfaces. This trunk comes with a brush-signed Certificate of Authenticity signed by one of the monks at the Senge Monastery. There is also a map of the area, along with images of the lama that bless it.
