17th Century Antique Mongolian Tsa tsa. Attainment of Enlightenment.
Cute story: This is my first piece, I bought at an antique store in Beijing for four figures. Went to the store like 10 times before I bought it. When I did buy it, I took a girl who I was trying to impress. At the time he said it was the only piece like it in Beijing, I later took it to Katmandu and Delhi, where the antique dealers there said the silk was 17th C. In 2004ish I went to Mongolia and showed a picture of this to an antique dealer, and he was wowed, he hadn't seen one in 15 years. I was told that each Buddha is hand painted using incense. It is lovely. I keep thinking Buddhas Family Tree.
