Mahasiddha Set (Tsang Atelier, Various Lineages) | Sculpture: Tsang Atelier
Three of the sculpture below, the Shavaripa, Jalandhara, and Krishnacharya belong to a Chakrasamvara lineage set. Seventeen more images from this set are preserved in Ngor Ewam Monastery in Tsang, Tibet. A fourth sculpture, Vijayapada, is in the Frey Collection in Zurich, Switzerland. Nine sculpture from the set, although each identified by name through textual sources, remain unknown as to their whereabouts. A Luipa example appears to be a copy following the original Ngor Chakrasamvara sculpture set.
The Damarupa, holding a double sided drum and a skullcup, belongs to a Lamdre (Margapala) Lineage set. He is the fifth in the series.
It is likely that some of the Tibetan figures from these two lineage, Chakrasamvara and Lamdre, can be found in the Teachers Section of the Tsang Province Atelier sculpture gallery.
