TYPE: Tibetan Shugden with central mandala

CIRCA: 1900 – 1920

Striking Tibetan seating square featuring a mandala like center motif afloat in a brown field sparingly decorated with clouds, with the mountain motif anchoring the four corners. The main outer border is the Running T or Greek T design in blue, and while hard to discern at first it is encased in a rust red field giving it a magical 3D ‘floating’ effect; while the inner border is of pearls. Fine glossy wool and all lustrously rich saturated natural dyes and in excellent overall condition.
