Middle period sculpture is referring to the early 15th and 16th centuries and the rise of the three dominant Tibetan sculpture styles of the time, Sonam Gyaltsen atelier, Tsang atelier and the Karma Garlug. There is an overlap during the 15th century with the early to mid 1400 demise of the Densatil sculpture style.
