Painting. The biography of a High Lama (Nyingma Teacher). Scenes from the life of a great teacher and patriarch of the Red cap Lama Sect, whose portrait is shown at center. In the background are details of his pilgrimages, with interesting views of Tibetan landscape and architecture. As this is not one of the familiar lama saints, inscriptions in Tibetan script explain the details for the Tibetan worshipper. Bright colors. Recent.
