tantric offering-scarve

ink and colour on silk
Tibet, 17th-18th cent.
size: 238 x 52 cm.

Typical silk scarf (ka btags), with interwoven motives, traditionally used for greetings, as a sigh of respect and offerings. Painted with tantric subjects, and used for hanging in the Gong khang, as special offering. At the bottom a long text in Tibetan.
Restored, but in good condition – quite rare!
