Art made in Tibet by Tibetan monks

Tibetan Torma Trunk

Starting at: $789.00

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 front border of flowers is comprised of blue and red Chrysanthemums, it surrounds the front's rendering of a grand offering bowl filled with Cintamani and two sets of elephant tusks. Below the offerin bowl are leapord skins covered with fine cloth. The sky is filled with cumulus clouds with subtle energy that the practitioner will posses. The sides feature a pink lotus blossom that is blooming well above materialism as represented by the turbulent waters. The top has a well depicted pheasant. 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. . 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 blessed it.
