Tibetan Saddle Carpet with Horses

Himalayan Antiques



$950 

The graphic quality of the pair of horses wearing blankets just like this one makes up for this carpet's not-so-pristine condition.

It has had considerable reweaving in the blue areas and there is fraying around the edges. While we accept returns with everything we sell, we want to emphasize that we will accept the return of this as-is item so long as the purchaser is willing to pay return shipping fees.

Himalayan Antiques



$825 

The carved design of this old Tibetan book cover remains very crisp even though only a few flecks of gold remain to hint at its former elegance. A sacred vase with a knotted scarf is the central focus. A beaded edge completes the central frame, and around it is a painted surface of gold over red also dominated by scrolls. The left edge of the book cover is also carved with scrolls. The reverse side is plain, but unscarred by the knife marks which helped disguise many book covers during the C ...click for details

Himalayan Antiques



$525 

The conch is one of the eight auspicious symbols of Tibetan Buddhism. It is also a powerful amplifier of sound and as such is used for the call to prayer. Buddhism adopted the symbolism of the conch from Hinduism and it represents the truth of the dharma in Buddhist practice.

We categorized this item as an antique because the shell certainly is, though we want to make clear that the silver work with inlaid turquoise a ...click for details

$385 

In addition to their notorious butter tea, Tibetans are also very fond of jasmine tea, which they serve in porcelain cups. A silver stand and cover like this make for a most elegant service for a special guest.

The cup we are showing with the stand and lid is just a stand-in, and we don't own a cup of just the right proportions. We are selling only the silver stand and cover. As can be seen in the photo, th ...click for details

Himalayan Antiques



$1850 

Tsaklis occupy a small and rather neglected niche in the world of Tibetan Buddhist artifacts. They are like poor cousins to the much more studies and collected Tibetan thangkas, but they are much more numerous than thangkas and offer a much wider range of subject matter.

Like thangkas tsakli come in a wide range of qualities and painting styles. Some were rather hurriedly painted by not very skilled artists ...click for details

Identifiable as Hayagriva by the horse head protruding from his hair, he is portrayed here as single headed and with two arms, three eyes and a pair of Garuda wings. As with most portraits of Tibetan wrathful deities, he stands in front of raging flames.

Tibetan Buddhist worship features two different kinds of vases with several variants: the "bumpa" and the "tshe bum". The former is often called the sacred vase. It is for holding water and generally has a spout. The vase we are showing here in a painted wooden version is a "tshe bum". It is generally called a vase-of-life or long-life vase and can be distinguished from a bumpa by the four pendants which cascade from the top and the lack of a spout. ...click for details
