Painting Set: Charts: Blue Beryl Medical Set 13

Blue Beryl Painting Set (Lhasa 20th century) | Blue Beryl Main Page

This is a rare and complete copy, circa 1990s, of the medical paintings that accompany the text known as the Blue Beryl medical treatise commissioned by the 3rd Desi, Sanggye Gyatso (1653-1705), in the 17th century. The copy of the set is relatively new, created over several years in the early 1990s, and painted in Lhasa, Tibet. The set stands as a close to true facsimile being based on an almost complete remaining early set believed to have been originally commissioned by Sanggye Gyatso (that set currently residing in Lhasa).
