A Thangka depicting Manjusri Nepal(?), 19th Century

Lot 5: A Thangka depicting Manjusri Nepal(?), 19th Century

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A splendid thangka of very fine pictorial quality probably depicting Dharmadhātu­ Vāgīśvara, an uncommon version of Mañjuśri. In this particular form, with golden coloured skin, the Transcendent Bodhisattva is shown with eight arms, three main heads, plus a fourth surmounted on the others. Seated comfortably on a lotus flower he is accompanied by his partner Sarasvatī resting on one of his legs. The attributes that he carries in his six hands are the khaḍga sword, a lotus flower, a bow and arrow and a book. The two frontal hands nearest his chest move the doctrine wheel, dharmacakrapravartanamudrā. Another twelve figures around the centrally positioned couple are mostly set in puffy clouds of varying colours. The particularity of this beautiful painting is that despite the clear Sino/Tibetan stylistic input, it is more like to be Indo-Newari. To reinforce this hypothesis is the pictorial style of the two small groups in the lower part that depict real people and not religious subjects. The left hand group depicts the Newari ethnic group  in a Nepalese and Indian manner, whilst to the right there is a clear Chinese influence in the clothes and the technical nature is identical to the previous group. Even the face of Sarasvetī  is not particularly in line with the Sino-Tibetan cannons These two groups, one Hindu Napalese (recognisable from the tikka, by the Newari crown and by the sacred ox placed in the front) and one Chinese, presumably Buddhist,  may well have been the patrons of the thangka. That would explain the mixed styles in the work. In both groups there are children, a chinese boy and a Nepalese little girl and its very likely that the commission was made to celebrate their marriage. The painted frame that attempts to simulate Chinese style embroidery is also interesting to note. lxh 44 x 58 cm

Lot 11: Thangka depicting Panjaranatha Mahakala Tibet, 16th Century

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

A Thangka depicting Eruka  Tibet, 17th Century

Lot 12: A Thangka depicting Eruka  Tibet, 17th Century

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A large thangka of the Nyingma lineage depicting Eruka (the drinker of blood)  in the variant of Mahottara. Given the age of the painting and the clear wear, above all in the upper section, it is not possible to a have a complete vision of the work but the superb quality can still be partly appreciated. It is however clear that the  figure represented here has twenty-one faces which have an angry semblance, at least the three that are legible. Apart from revealing many arms in a fan-shape and the hands holding a kapāla, he also shows off two spread wings. The reddish skin is in chromatic contrast with the blue colour of his companion, who also has many faces. In the lower area another nine figures are discernible and apparently angry-looking and some with wings. Despite the losses, this is however a work of extremely high artistic value. lxh 71 x 102 cm

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

There is a reddish triangle in the centre of this triptych containing three syllables of the mantra "Om-Ah-Hum". Auspicious symbols and various Vajra in the second ring can also be seen. The reverse of the Maṇḍala bears a hand imprint, probably the monk's who consecrated the work. lxh 52 x 62 cm

Apart from the splendid scrollwork motifs, the presence of  fabric that acts as a frame is also of note, probably from a later date.Measurements with frame: length 45 cm, height 57 cm lxh 40 x 35 cm

Thangka depicting the master Gelug-pa   China/Tibet, 18th Century

Lot 18: Thangka depicting the master Gelug-pa   China/Tibet, 18th Century

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: An important and fine quality thangka depicting an unidentified master. The authoritative nature of the figure is dictated by the authority of the shown by the characteristic yellow cone hat, by the sumptuous throne on which he sits, richly embellished with gilt motifs, and also by his embroidered robe that also presents delicate gold detail. These characteristics suggest that the figure portrayed could be a master of high descent from the Gelug -pa school or a Dalai Lama. From the serene gaze and the slight smile, he holds his hands in the dharmacakrapravartanamudrā position, tightly holding a branch with a lotus flower on the right shoulder. There is a low table in front of him with two monks in a posture of devotion. The scene is placed in a natural setting; his head is protected by a peony tree with soft carmine pink flowers. Amongst these fronds and resting on clouds, sits a pandita master, probably Go Lotsawa. The presence of this figure would suggest a relationship with the main noble figure or a relationship of student and master. Another three figures are also present in the composition: in the top right Cakrasaṁvara with his partner Vajra-yoginī can be identified, while in the lower band there are two Dharmapāla, Bagtse Mahākāla on the left and Devī on the right, astride a wild donkey.Of note, placed on a mountain in the landscape behind, is a city, probably depicting the place of origin of the protagonist of this elegant thangka.Measurements (including frame): length 78 cm, height 115 cm. lxh 47 x 69 cm

Lot 20: A diptych representing Vajra-Dharma and Ghantapada China/Tibet, late 18th-19th Century

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: An important pair of thangka of superb artistic and pictorial quality depicting primordial Buddha Vajra-Dharma (rdo-rje-chos) and Siddha Ghaṇṭāpāda (dril-bu-pa).Surrounded by a blue halo and with the torso in an extremely sinuous pose, the Vajra-Dharma, with his typical pale red complexion, is depicted in the centre of thangka "A". Seated in the ardhaparyaṅka posture on a tiger skin, he holds a smoking kapāla in his left hand and the ritual damaru drum in the right. The magic wand, the khaṭvāṅga, rests on his shoulder. Of exceptional pictorial quality, his somewhat irate face is extremely expressive and is framed by a light beard, characteristic of a young man, and long hair that is partly tied in a bun, surrounded by an elegant five-skull crown, and partly left loose on his shoulders. The figure is covered by a red loincloth, embellished by splendid bracelets, earrings, anklets and other jewellery. Set in a very fine natural setting, rendered beautifully in a style that shows a very strong Chinese influence, the principal figure is accompanied by four other characters, who are also skilfully depicted. In the top left, between the branches of a gnarled willow tree, is an unidentified figure who could be an Indian master or a Siddha, who apart from wearing a pointed red hat, also holds a book in his right hand whilst the left is in the gesture of explaining the vitarkamudrā doctrine. To his right, surrounded by peony buds, is a rare white version of Cakrasaṁvara. Joined to his partner Vajra-yoginī, who embraces him, Cakrasaṁvara also holds two gold phials. In the lower area, surrounded by a flaming halo and with blue skin, Dharmapāla Mahākāla is depicted in his caturbhuja (four handed) version. He presents attributes including the triśūla trident, the kapāla, the kartika and the khaḍga sword. A portrait of the Transcendent Buddha Amitāyus in his canonical representation, frames the lower left corner of the composition.The portrait of mahāsiddha Ghaṇṭāpāda fills the centre of thangka "B", also magisterially represented and characterised by an intricate coiffeur held together by a five-skull crown and his thick curly beard. He is portrayed in a highly plastic manner in the act of jumping to soar. As well as being bejewelled, he holds the Vajra stretched out in his right hand, and the ghaṇṭā bell in his left, also held by his partner who he embraces by his side. The other attribute that she holds out to her husband is a smoking kapāla. The Chinese-style landscape, as well as representing a fine expanse of clouds, depicts an area of water that refers to the legend about mahāsiddha and his wife. Surrounding the couple who are engaged in this athletic endeavour are other five figures. In the upper left corner, immersed in the clouds is the blue-skinned Cakrasaṁvara characterised by his twelve arms and embracing Vajra-yoginī. To his right, surrounded by a halo in turn surrounded by green vine sprays and peony buds, is an unidentified figure, but who thanks to two of his attributes, the kapāla and the drum, could be identified as Siddha Ḍamarupa. In the lower right corner, are two (one male and one female) Citipati skeletons (Dur-khrod-bdag-po). Intertwined in an exuberant death dance, both hold the kapāla and sceptre. To the left, to complete the whole composition, is the Green Tārā, Syama Tārā (Sgrol-ljaṅ) seated at the edge of a pond in the shade of a tree and accompanied by a monk in prayer. Both thangka present small gilt inscriptions on the reverse with the letters "Om Ah Hum". Furthermore, in the lower section of the recto, a black band with inscriptions that would seem to praise certain tantric practises relating to the figures represented. It should also be noted that both the paintings are in their original fine blue brocade frames embroidered with Chinese-style dragons. From a private Florentine collection, they were acquired in 1972 from the auction house Pandolfini on the occasion of the auction of furniture and furnishings from the villas "Il Tasso" and "Pipiano" that formed part of the legacy of Mr Hugh Sartorius Whitaker (1885-1971). A very similar diptych, but with two different figures, was offered by Christie's in the auction "Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art" on 7th November 2006, London, King Street (Sale 7270, lot 133).Measurements with frame: length 70 cm, height 135 cm. lxh 40 x 70 cm
