Thangkas are devotional paintings displayed by Buddhists in their homes, monasteries, and temples. Rich pigments are still incredibly vibrant in this sacred 19th-century Tibetan Thangka. The painting's central figure is of Vajrayogini, a female Buddha of Tantric Buddhism. Typically depicted with red skin and a third eye of wisdom, she is the Buddha of transcendent passion and is devoted to the well-being of others and the destruction of ego. In this Thangka, Vajrayogini is shown with a curved driguk knife in one hand and a kapala of blood in the other ( a vessel made of a human skull). Above this deity is a seated Buddha and a Bodhisattva figure. This Thangka is framed appropriately & thoughtfully by silk fabric panels bearing auspicious Buddhist symbols.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
