Red Ground Main Page

This page presents a group of paintings that are unrelated iconographically and do not appear to belong to a single painting set. The paintings do appear to belong to a Central Tibetan painting atelier based on observation of brush stroke, colour and compositional similarities between the four examples.

Iconographic Subjects:
- Vajravidarana
- Yutog Yontan Gonpo
- Tara & the Eight Fears
- Amitabha Buddha (?)
- Medicine Buddha
- Others...
