This figurine representing Lama Tsongkhapa or Je Tsongkhapa or Je Rimpoche, was made in Kham (Eastern Tibet).
Zongkapa Lobsang Zhaba, or Tsongkhapa (what literally menas "The man from Tsongkha"), 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.
Unlike most statues made for the tourists, 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 way. This hole is closed by cover.
