Embroidered Tibetan Buddhist Ritual Crown Ringga
Ringas come in many styles and qualities. This embroidered one is of a quality not often found. Dating from the 18th century it might have been made in China for the Tibetan market or in Tibet itself. Ringas like this were often displayed on statues rather than having been used by lamas. That might account for the excellent condition.

For comparison see plate 73 from Treasures of Tibetan Art from the Newark Museum.

Spread out for framing its dimensions would occupy a rectangle 24" x 12". Each of the five panels measures 7-1/2" by 5". Very good condition.
