PROPERTY FROM THE NYINGJEI LAM COLLECTION SOLD FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE NYINGJEI LAM CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
The lama and upper throne element are richly fire-gilt, while the lower lotus petal base and reverse remain ungilded. The plump and full-bodied physical modelling, the short neck and wide eyes are highly emblematic of the ambient Newari aesthetic driving the ateliers of Central Tibet throughout the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Compare the facial type, finely arched brows, and bodily proportion of the current work with a fourteenth century thangka depicting Virupaksha and Vaishravana from the Tamashige Tibet Collection, sold in our New York rooms, 19th March 2014, lot 90.
