Interpretation / Description

Dondrub Rinchen (1309-1385).

At the top center is Chaturbhuja Lokeshvara. To the proper right side is White Tara and to the left Green Tara. Below Lokeshvara is Jowo Atisha with a monastic teacher seated at the right and left sides.

At the bottom center is Panjanata Mahakala. To his right is Brahmanarupa Mahakala. At the left side is Chaturbhuja Mahakala.

The painting style appears very close with a Lamrim Lineage and Panchen Lama painting set, if not by the same artist(s) then definitely from the same workshop and atelier.
