Here you can see finest statue of Lama Tsongkhapa or Je Tsongkhapa or Je Rimpoche made in Kham (Eastern Tibet), medium size — 15 cm, fine carving.
Zongkapa Lobsang Zhaba, or Tsongkhapa (what literally menas "The man from Tsongkha", 1357–1419), usually taken to mean "the Man from Onion Valley", born in Amdo in 1357. He became a famous teacher of Tibetan Buddhism whose activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. He is also known by his ordained name Losang Drakpa (Tib.: བློ་བཟང་གྲགས་པ་, Wylie: blo bzang grags pa) or simply as "Je Rinpoche" (Tib.: རྗེ་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་, Wylie: rje rin po che). In his two main treatises, the Lamrim Chenmo (Tib.: ལམ་རིམ་ཆེན་མོ་, Wylie: lam rim chen mo) and Ngakrim Chenmo (Tib.: སྔགས་རིམ་ཆེན་མོ་, Wylie: sngags rim chen mo), Tsongkhapa meticulously sets forth this graduated way and how one establishes oneself in the paths of sutra and tantra.
All the details of this statue — such as the hands, face, etc — are made very carefully and in the details. Each statue has some space inside to be filled by traditional substances.
Important remark on color perception!!!
Dear buyers, to avoid any inconvenience you need to understand this information about color perception.
Color perception depends on the light conditions. All the pictures in our shop were taken under three professional light spots with color temperature 5100-5500K. It doesn't mean we publish not realistic pictures. It means the powerful source of light can penetrate through upper film of black patina, and the color appear more "milk chocolate" than "dark chocolate".
But, as one our buyer noticed, under average room conditions it will rather look as "dark chocolate".
To make this fact more clear we took two pictures without professional sources of light. Please feel the difference between these two pictures: one was taken on open sunshine light with color temperature 5050K. Another shoot was made in the room with electric light, what color temperature is 3050K.
Here is a question: what is more realistic?
