Art made in Tibet by Tibetan monks

Scripture Box

Starting at: $549.00

 Very good lay out and excellent kyungbur on this well done storage box. This box has two mantras, one on the top in Tibetan holy text and one on each end in Tibetan text. The sides show lots of motion and interaction. The art work is very good, the colors are vibrant on this box; thematically it is about understanding the interconnectivity and cause and effect of those things we do in our life. The Infinite knot on this sides give way to Durva grass as a reminder that through out all of our lives we have an effect on the cosmos. This scripture storage box was never pressed into service and has been in storage for a few decades at the Sange Monastery. It is quite customary for the monasteries to make more items then they can distribute as they are in the business of providing Tibetan Buddhist functional art for the other monasteries all over Tibet. This box was patterned after the late 18th and early 19th century boxes. If it would have been sent out to be used for scripture storage the interior would have been stained a very dark purple. The top has the 6-syllable mantra of Avalokitshvara, OM MANI PADME HUM in the Tibetan Holy text that is similar to Sanskrit. The front and back are basically the same. The mantra on each end of the box is OM AH HOM, which is the "Body~Speech~Mind" of Buddha, as in one's acquisition of these properties.
