Kagyu Trinle Shingta HAR #873

Kagyu Trinle Shingta, the 7th Drugchen (1718-1766) [TBRC P842]: with the right hand extended across the knee and the left in the lap supporting a long-life vase; dressed in the robes of a monk. This composition is from a set of paintings, of an unknown number, depicting the Drugpa Kagyu lineage of Drugchens. Only one other painting from the set is known to exist. That painting, belonging to Tibet House, New York, is of Kunzig Chokyi Nangwa, the 8th Drugchen (1768-1822) [TBRC P846].
