A very striking Tibetan bronze figure of Palden Lhamo (Shri Devi) who while associated with ancient pre-Buddhist Tibetan deities connected with the creation and suppression of disease became a protector of the Buddhist religion, specifically protector of the city of Lhasa and of the Dalai Lama himself.

The Bodhisattva Collection
$395.00
From our Indian Subcontinent Collection, a very good pair of contemporary Indian miniature paintings of caparisoned elephants, executed in a palette that contrasts rich red with a lavish use of gilt, along with grey, white, and black.
