More than half of the collection is comprised of painting and sculpture that depicts various types of deity figures such as Buddhas, meditational deities both peaceful and wrathful, bodhisattvas, protectors and wealth deities.
More than twenty pieces depict teachers such as arhats, pandits, mahasiddhas and Tibetan Lamas. A dozen or more objects have miscellaneous subjects such as a dance apron, astrological charts, mandalas and such. (More paintings are scheduled to be uploaded and the Tibet House sculpture collection has not yet been added to the Himalayan Art Resources database).
