Cast in brass with a rich patina, this seated figure is a Lama, a spiritual master and teacher of the Dharma in Tibetan Buddhism. The figure likely depicts Lama Tsongkapa (1357-1419), a Tibetan philosopher and founder of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. The Lama is seated upon a double lotus plinth in diamond position, draped in monk's robes and wearing the pointed yellow hat of the Gelug tradition. He holds his hands in the dharmachakra mudra, the Gesture of Teaching, a symbol for setting the Dharma wheel in motion through enlightened knowledge. An expression of wisdom and guidance, this serene figure emanates calm and encourages focused concentration.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
