14th-16th C. Tibetan Thangka of Vajra Varahui

Lot 0058 Details

Description
14th-16th C. Tibetan Thangka of Vajra Varahui: A powerfully rendered early Tibetan Thangka scroll painting of Vajra Varahi (Sanskrit), Dorje Pakmo (Tibetan), 14th-16th c. Provenance: Bill Liske. Size: 21 x 18-1/2 inches (Thangka); 42 x 21 inches (Background Textile).

This powerfully rendered early Tibetan Thangka scroll painting, dating to 14th-16th century Tibet, comes to the auction from the Bill Liske Collection of Tibetan and Chinese Textiles and Artifacts. It depicts the deific reincarnation known as Vajra Varahi in Sanskrit and Dorje Pakmo in Tibetan, thought to be a reincarnation of the consort to the deity Demchok, or Heruka. The highest-ranking female incarnation, she ranks behind only the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama as a Buddhist leader. The painted Thangka measures 21 x 18-1/2 inches, while the background textile with blue flower roundels measures 42 x 21 inches. Bill Liske’s collection is the fruit of three decades of Liske’s travel and work in the Himalayan region. Originally a mountaineer and guide, Liske’s natural eye for textiles was honed by textile dealers in the area, and his expertly-chosen collection has appeared at the History Museum in Denver, and in Hali magazine.
