Why this is a
Masterpiece

Lamaist artifacts are anonymous, and usually we do not know the creator’s name and personality. This sculpture shows all the stylistic features of the outstanding artist and leading religious personality, G. Zanabazar.

History of the Object
In Mongolia, artifacts of Buddhist worship were produced in imperishable materials while objects of Shamanist worship were produced in perishable materials, so it was mainly Buddhist objects that have survived and reached foreign collectors and collections.
