A wonderful work of art, probably dating from the 18th century, with Sino Tibetan origins. The finely carved lapis lazuli stone is framed in a beautifully engraved gilt bronze piece decorated with turquoises and red stones. The relief work seems to show a priest sitting in the lotus position, holding sacred tools.

Additional pictures available on request.

Kindly inquire if you have some questions.

The plaque is in good condition with obvious traces of ageing and oxidation. It presents an innocent line across part of its front (see picture 9). The lapis lazuli piece cannot be removed from the frame. The blue color is actually a little deeper than in the picture.
Dimensions: 17.5 (h) x 14 x 5 cm (7 x 5.6 x 2 in), weight 385g (13.5 oz)
