Painting Set: Kundeling Incarnation Lineage
Kundeling Incarnation Lineage | Kundeling Painting Set Outline | Gelug Tradition Main Page | Incarnation Lineages Outline
The Kundeling painting set below is missing the 5th Tatsag composition and was likely a nine painting set in total with the inclusion of Manjushri. The set was most probably created after the passing of the 8th Tatsag after 1810 and before the recognition of the 9th Tatsag (born in 1811). It is not currently known when the 9th was recognized which could have been up to five or ten years later.
The composition and execution of the paintings in a Chamdo style follows very closely with other known paintings, both in private and museum collections, associated with the Chamdo region of Eastern Tibet.
