Vintage Tibetan Door with Snow Lion
A unique old painted Tibetan door
This vintage door is decorated with a white Snow Lion supporting a large tray of coloured spheres. Above the spheres is a fierce horned face that resembles Yama, the Lord of Death. Below the lion are apparently abstract shapes that may represent samsara or worldly experience.
The wooden door panel has been covered with coarse cotton cloth to provide a medium for the paint.
A dramatic work of art with a red background. On the right of the panel are two extensions that are part of the door's hinge system. These could be removed if you want to stand the door on the floor. Alternatively it could be hung on a wall.
