4. Buddha The painting is 27" high, 17" wide. Tibet. In brocade frame (with brocade, 40" high, 25" wide). This was painted in the early 1950s on an oiled canvas -- a technique used so that the thanka could then be rolled up and carried on long journeys as a portable altar. The Buddha is seated on a peacock throne, surrounded by meditating monks, deities, and other Bodhisattvas, while references are made to scenes from his life. The small figures of monks and rejoicing devis are particularly nice. $450.
