A RARE 19th CENTURY THANGKA DEPICTING PEHAR GYALPO

Distemper and gold paint on cloth, framed in plain linen mounting

This thangka shows the rare motif of Pehar Gyalpo, the worldly protector king, as the central figure. The wrathful deity with blue skin is shown seated on a white elephant and is holding a dagger and a vajra string in his hands. The flame back-drop adds to the powerful appearance of the portrayal. The central figure is surrounded by the five forms of Pehar Gyalpo, all riding a different beast. At the very top is a Buddha figure holding a bowl and showing the gesture of granting wishes.
