Peaceful Wind

4. Large Manuscript Cover
Tibet
14th-15th c.
carved and painted wood
29 x 14 1/2 inches
Large Manuscript Cover
Detail:view from left showing carving on side and added wings
This Manuscript cover is of particular interest not only for its masterful carving, but also because it is inscribed and it has had upper and lower 'wing' extensions added to it. The wings were likely added to accommodate a larger sized book at some point in its long history.
Detail: close up of Makara and Lion, also main inscription
