Religious and political ties between China and Tibet began under Emperor Yongle (1403-1424) who invited the first Tibetan Lama to the Ming court and thus started an interchange that continued into the Qing Dynasty of artistic ideas, styles, representations, and iconography between China and Tibet.

  • Antique Repoussé Earth Witnessing Buddha, Tibetan


    This wonderful gilt metal antique Tibetan repoussé image portrays Buddha in earth witnessing mudra (hand touching position) under a trefoil arch at the moment of his enlightenment. Mounted on an L-shaped wood stand, it is in excellent condition. This 17th century Tibetan work was decommissioned and subsequently purchased by us from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
