Excellent condition

Thangka depicting Padmasambava Tibet, 18th century. . Cm 51,00 x 67,00. Big painting on cotton, made with natural pigments and depicting the master Padmasmbhava (Guru Rimpoche), who introduced Buddhism to Tibet. The character is central to the scene and is portrayed with the historical attributes: dressed with sumptuous monastic robes trimmed in gold, he holds a Kapala in his left hand, which rests in his lap, and a vajra in his right one. Resting on a shoulder is the khatvanga club, which identifies him as a wielder of magic powers. He is also adorned by big earrings and a peculiar shaped headdress. The character sits in the padmasana position on a base decorated by rose petals. He is surrounded by a rainbow colored halo and by peony blossoms and leaves, which surround on both sides his two wives portrayed in the position of prayer: Mandarava on the left and Yeshe Tsogyal on the right. In a peculiar composition around the master are depicted scenes from his life, with underlying descriptions in gold, set in a verdant and idyllic background together with his eight manifestations. From the top and moving counterclockwise are portrayed: Orgyan Dorj Chang at the top, Nyima Oser, Pema Gyalpo, Sengge Dradog (a wrathful manifestation), Pema Jungne, Dorje Drolo (riding a tiger), Loden Chogse and Shakya Sengge.

    Vente d'un objet cassé sans que cela ne soit indiqué dans la description. Il faut avoir la saya (foureau) et regarder les photos publiées pour le savoir.

    Je suis désolé si le ton était un peu grossier. Maintenant que j'ai vu les photos Je suis au courant du problème, je ne contrôle pas directement sur les objets, mon collaborateur doit avoir été mal collés et sans m'avisant des problèmes qui s'est produite. Certes, je comprends son ressentiment. Que puis-je faire pour résoudre ce qui s'est passé ? Cordialement
