Choggyur Lingpa depicted on the front of the painting with handprints on the reverse of the painting.
Choggyur Lingpa (1829-1870) was a Terton, treasure revealer, in the 19th century and descended from the hereditary Baram Kagyu line. He was also a contemporary and friend to both Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo. He discovered many termas that are still popular within the Kagyu and Nyingma Traditions. (See a short biography of Choggyur Lingpa).
