Buddha Thangka: Nomadic, Tibetan, 16th - 17th Century
A very ancient Thangka (16th - 17th century) of a unique type.
Used by a nomadic Lama - very rare if not singular. The painting is worn but still clear - the central image is of Buddha holding a child - two Dharma protectors are on either side - the vessel of long life below. On the other side are depicted two Bodhisattva's. There is damage caused by use and extreme age and there are signs of some contemporary repairs. The red cloth is monks rope and the images are mounted on leather.
Size: 14" across x 15" high
