Description

Buddha images carved into the rock face on part of the Lingkhor, the sacred road around Lhasa near Chakpori. The three Sakyamuni Buddha images in the centre represent, left to right, the Buddha in meditation, at the moment of enlightenment and preaching. The many smaller images carved in the rock face surrounding these central figures are also depicted in a variety of different mudra. Carvings of deities can be seen in the lowest band of carvings and one of Atisha or Tsongkhapa in the bottom left of the image has been carved into the rock face in the round. Other paintings and carvings can be seen in the bottom of the image extending out of the frame

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.
