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. The blue sky is ground lapis and sparkles in the light. The condition is extraordinary, and the art work is excellent. It is only 1 and 15/16ths by 2 and 9/16th inches in size, which makes it all the more remarkable . It has a Tibetan word on the back.
