  • 西藏 十八/十九世紀 多傑鄧炯堆繡掛幔

    Shingjachen, King of Qualities, an avowed protector of Padmasambhava, grips his prescribed ax and lasso while riding a black stallion amid the swirling flames of pristine awareness. On the left, Dorje Dudjom (8th/9th century; tbrc.org P0RK1005), one of the twenty-five disciples of Padmasambhava, wears an apron with a Mahakala face before a yellow aureole. They are framed by a glorious array of flowers and gems.

    Showing two members of Padmasambhava's entourage, the entire arrangement, which includes the following lot (lot 3056), might have depicted Padmasambhava in his eight forms with his entire band of disciples and retinue. Judging by the impressive size of these two lots, the whole assemblage would have formed a truly monumental hanging that must have adorned an important monastic hall. Compare with two large examples in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (acc. nos. M.81.332 & M.78.74; Pal, Art of Tibet, Los Angeles, 1983, pp.98 & 180, no.P45; Thurman, Sacred Symbols, New York, 1999, p.103, no.46).

    Provenance
    Collection of a Private American Family, acquired in Kathmandu, 1967-70
