  • 西藏 約十四世紀 銅鎏金竹巴或直貢噶舉喇嘛像

    The lama wears the telltale broad hats associated with a number of orders that arose from the initial followers of Pagmodrupa. Rather than a double lotus base around the foot of the bronze, he is also seated on a plinth typical of the production under these orders between the 13th and 15th centuries, seen for instance at Densatil. Also compare a charismatic portrait of Padmasambhava in the collection of Philip Adams at Bonhams, New York, 13 March 2017, lot 3085.
