Description

Part of the southern face of the Potala adorned with two appliquéd banners, Koku, (gos sku) for the
Sertreng ceremony (tshogs mchod ser spreng) on the 30th day of the 2nd Tibetan month. The banners have images of the Buddha surrounded by deities and bodhisattvas. The Shol inscription pillar may be seen in the centre of the image. Crowds of onlookers are in the foreground. There are some monks standing on a bridge at the bottom of the image.



Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
