Wooden printing block with text and central wind horse (Tibetan: lungta). The four corners include the Tibetan symbols for the four supernatural animals, a garuda, a dragon, a tiger, and a snow-lion who guard the four cardinal directions. The top depicts a crescent moon and solar dot. This block was probably used to make a prayer flag.
