This painting has been identified as Marpa Chokyi Lodro while in the Essen Collection, Germany. This identification has been maintained after moving to the Museum der Kulturen, Basel Switzerland.
Based on the iconography and the surrounding figures it is unlikely that this is in fact Marpa and more likely to be a Nyingma, Sakya, or Jonang Lama.
