Private 4, Painting (Masterworks)

The first painting of Shri Devi appears to be a 19th century commission. The three following paintings are dated to the 16/17th century and most likely originate from Sakya Monastery in Tsang Province, Central Tibet. The remaining black ground paintings are modern commissions of the 20th century. (See the Black Ground Paintings main page.)
