9. Gilded Wooden Door Panel of a Female Deity. 13th to 14th Century, Bhutan or Tibet. 15 1/4" (38.5 cm.) wide, 7 3/4" (19 cm.) high, 1" deep. One of the same series of panels from a temple door, this one is newer than the others and seems to be a 19th century replacement. The goddess is seated on a lotus and holds a bell and dorje, a sword and a rope in her four hands. See a similar one offered at Sotheby's in March, 2001.
