RITUAL CROWN OF A LAMA
Color on textile on papier mâché, leather
Tibet, 15th century

Crown in the form of a five-leaved Tathagata crown, worn for ceremonial events. Slightly conical, in upper area five-fold overlapping picture boards which - with the exception of one - each present a larger circular depiction of a deity in the center, below four smaller, at the top another without border. Animals are also portrayed. Due to age, corrosion and patina, details are not recognizable. The fifth leaf offers only one deity in lapped border. Pure decoration is composed in light relief, the same on four crown sections, stronger on the fifth and with flame motifs. The lower border with leather. Interesting and mystical effect of patina.
