Lineage Paintings - Dual

The Dual Type lineage composition means that two distinct lineages are represented in the same composition. Beginning at the top of the composition and descending down the left side is the Kagyu lineage with Tilopa, Naropa and Marpa. Descending on the right side is the Kadam lineage beginning with Atisha and Dromton.
