Art made in Tibet by Tibetan monks

Lhasa style Tibetan Buddhist altar

Starting at: $1,795.00

Beautiful hand-painted Tibetan Buddhist altar table with the Phoenix on top presented in a layer look that dates back to circa 1600 in styling and can be seen on the top of an altar from that period. This look is also evident in the windows of the monks' quarters in the lower Sange AKA Wutun Monastery (this window shot is of the quarters next to the author's when he stayed at the monastery in 2006 doing research). This nicely painted piece of Tibetan furniture was made for use in a Labrang (lama's residence) in central Tibet. When Tibetan Buddhist altars are painted on all 4 sides they are made to be placed in the center of a room with sufficient space to walk around. They were always circumambulated in a clockwise direction. This altar is painted on front, top, back, & both the right & left ends and was made at the Sange or Wutun AKA Wutong Monastery in Qinghai AKA Amdo region in eastern Tibet. The only metal hardware on this piece are the brass antique coins used on the drawer pulls at each end. Comes with COA, iconography and other supporting documents.
