A THANGKA OF PADMASAMBHAVA AS SENGGE DRADOG WITH FOUR DISCIPLES
EASTERN TIBET, PALPUNG STYLE, 19TH CENTURY

From a set of nine paintings, the present work depicts Sengge Dradog, one of the Eight Manifestations of Padmasambhava who is credited with introducing Buddhism to Tibet in the 8th century. In this rare representation, he is surrounded by four of his twenty-five disciples: Palgyi Yeshe holding a ghanta and vajra in his outstretched hands while in flight; Ma Rinchen Chog eating rocks; Palgyi Sengge offering teachings to figures emerging from clouds; and Gyalway Lodro transforming corpses into solid gold. Compare with a closely related group done in the Palpung style, specifically thangkas of Mahakala Bernag Chen (HAR 942) and Machig Labron (HAR 57037).

Provenance
Private European Collection assembled in the 1960s and 1970s
