The Collection >> Painted Tibetan Furniture >> A large Thorgam
A four door painted Tibetan Torgam ( Tantric cabinet )The four painted doors wildly decorated with offerings to Mahakala, a wrathful diety and protector of the Buddha's teaching's.Tantric cabinets are rare , only to be found in the private shrine rooms of the ruling classes , and in the segregated quaters of the highest of Lamas . The decoration appears grim and repulsive , but that is to misinterpret it.Amongst other things it conveys the rejuvenation of life through rebirth.
