Offering Paintings 'Kangdze'

The images below depict paintings with 'torma' (Tibetan: tor ma. Sanskrit: ba lim ta), cone shaped ritual food offerings, sculpted in a variety of shapes and sizes, coloured and then adorned with flat circular 'buttons' made from butter. It is common to have paintings made that represent 'torma' and these paintings would be hung permanently in the protector shrines of a temple or monastery.
