For sale here is an antique late 19th to early 20th century Tibetan Thangka painting on fabric of Mahakala (a Buddhist protective diety) that has been mounted on board with original period matte and wood frame. A fine polychrome hand painted image of the diety on fabric that was collected by the original owner in Tibet in the early 20th century, and was mounted and framed in the 1940s at a frame shop in Washington DC as shown by the label at back. The Tibetan 'thangka' painting is made using ground pigment on cotton or silk, and Buddhist thought is that it helps to accrue merit to the viewer by making spiritual progress in the process of meditating on its spiritual lesson. Mahakala is a deity common to Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism, and in Tibetan Buddhism is considered a protective deity that protects spiritual advancement. He is usually black in color, as in this example, and is sometimes considered an emanation of Avalokitesvara, known in China as Kwan Yin. The frame measures 26-5/8" by 21-5/8" by 2" deep while the painting itself measures 15" by 20" approximately. The painting is in fine condition especially given its age though the frame and matte show some wear as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
