Why this is a
Masterpiece

Here Hevajraand his partner are surrounded by their attendant goddesses. The mandala is conveniently conceived as a four-sided palace-temple with portals to each of the four quarters, in the centre of which the god and goddess are manifest in mystic embrace. The row of Indian teachers and Tibetan lamas at the top of the painting illustrates the succession of teachers by which Hevajra’s tradition was transmitted.

History of the Object
Most Tibetan paintings represent well-known sets of divinities, but it is not always easy to identify ‘saints’ and lamas, unless they are well known.
