TYPE: a monastic two panel tsuktruk

CIRCA: 1900 / early 1900’s

A small two paneled three colour Tibetan tsuktruk that, given the colours, was made for monastic use. And rare in the fact that small tsuktruks are seldom seen, almost all are at least double the length. The main field is a rich burnished-gold, in one panel is a red yungdrung (swastika), the other sports a red tigma-like cross, all enclosed by a wine-red outer border. All natural dyes with wool pile and an all wool foundation, all had-spun. A lovely one of a kind piece from circa 1900 / the early 1900’s and in good condition.
