Country Group: The Himalayas (Tibet, Nepal, Mongolia and Other)
This is an extremely fine Mini Thangka or teaching card: it was originally part of a large set. It is in the neighborhood of 100 years old and is guaranteed to be an authentic antique. I bought a group of these from a high end dealer who has had them for many years. (I have one other up for bid on Buddha1 right now from a different set). The blue sky is ground lapis and sparkles in the light. The condition is extraordinary, and the art work is excellent. It is only 2 and 1/8 by 2 and 3/4 inches in size, which makes it all the more remarkable. It has a Tibetan word on the back.
