Mahakala Panjaranatha

paint on textile, silkbrocade mounting (later date)
Tibet, 18th cent.

Panjaranatha (Gurgyi Gompo) is the typical protective deity of the Sakya monastic tradition; this painting belongs also to the Sakya. Very fine painting with an excellent pedigree!
Above Mahakala Buddha Akshobhya and four Sakya-masters.
