Expert’s note: Dr. David Templeman, a scholar of Tibetan Buddhism and Adjunct Research Fellow at Monash Asia Institute, Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, has previously appraised the present lot and according to him, the thangka depicts a local village deity from Rebgong, which is the Tibetan name of the city of Tongren in the autonomous prefecture of Huangnan, Qinghai, China. Rebgong has a number of Tibetan Buddhist temples and gompas, including the large and significant Rongwo Monastery of the Gelug school. It is known as a center of thangka painting. Rebgong arts were named on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists in 2009.
