Dalai Lama Incarnations (Tamashige) | Dalai Lama Main Page | Dalai Lama Painting Sets | Gold Silk Set

These five compositions are part of a thirteen painting set depicting the previous and the later incarnations of the Dalai Lama. The set was first created during the life of Kalzang Gyatso, the 7th Dalai Lama. The original set/s was also used as a model for wood cut block carvings used to make scores of replica prints on cloth and paper. Some of the wood cut prints were used as the under drawing for paintings.
