Lama Protectorates are rare to find in the market. This would have wrapped around the seat of a high lama as he chants sutras. What I was told is that while the lama is in deep meditation, he may be fightling evil demons and this will help guard against any encouchment evil may have. I have a fragment of a lama protectorate that is decent size and I took this photo because there was no way the monastery wanted to sell this. I offered, in a form of a donation, more money than it may be worth because I really wanted it but in the end they refused.
