19th C. Antique Tibetan Door Embossed Gold Silver Plate. These iron plates once adorned on all monastery doors but through time most were destroyed Finding door pieces like this is difficult but they are interesting when I do. This motif of a double dorje is a double dorje.

The double dorje is the family symbol of Amogasiddhi (one of the 5 Dhyani Buddhas), relative to ones karma. Buddha Amogasiddhi, the Conqueror, has the consort Green Tara. Fearless is his gesture, his vehicle is Garuda.
