A Tibetan fire-gilt bronze repoussé plaquette with a Lama. Early 19th century

[ translate ]

A Tibetan fire-gilt bronze repoussé plaquette with a Lama. Early 19th century

Enthroned on a large cushion seat, with a mandorla of rays and clouds in his back, next to him a large vessel. His hands on his lap, holding a book. He wears the Pandita hat, which is folded flat to the front, and a robe that leaves a part of his upper body uncovered. His facial expression radiates tranquility. Rests of red pigment.
34.7 x 30 cm

The figure probably depicts the Indian scholar Shakyaprabha and belongs to the group of revered teachers known in Tibet as "The Six Ornaments and Two Excellent Ones of the Southern Continent".
