About Tseden Namgyal:
Tseden Namgyal is one of Lhasa’s best known contemporary thangka painters. He has received a considerable degree of official recognition in recent years with shows in the United States as well as China and his works have appeared in numerous publications, most recently in an eight-page article in “Tibet” magazine. He has outstanding mastery of the form, which is particularly clear in the perfectly proportioned faces of his figures. One of his specialties is finely worked gilding, using a variety of techniques to produce contrasting finishes using gold foil and gold paint, as in this small painting.

The subject of this painting is Vajrasattva, who is an important god in Tantric Buddhism who stands at the head of one of the “clans” of Buddhas (that of Aksobhya). He is often portrayed at the top of thangka paintings of Buddhas and other figures from this group, where he is regarded as the originating deity who manifests the other forms.

Vajrasattva holds the bell (drilbu) and thunderbolt (dorje), the two symbols together representing the union of wisdom and compassion. He sits on a lotus throne, surrounded by peonies and precious offerings.

I do accept as true with all the ideas you've presented in your
post. They're very convincing and will certainly work.
Still, the posts are too quick for newbies.

May just you please lengthen them a little from next time?
Thank you for the post.
