Statue: Kunda (Wylie sku ’dra) སྐུ་འདྲ Late 19th / Early 20th century

A very old clay statue of Tangtong Gyalpo, wrapped in a white Katak Soshi. The head has become detached from the body and is loose. Some painting on the body. 234mm high. The staue was photographed wrapped, then unwrapped and then dusted. One statue.

The material is owned by Kinzum Gatuk and her husband Padma Dorje and has been handed down from father to son and to daughter through several generations of head Buchen. All the materials in the archive are kept within the prayer room of the house. This was not properly seen: materials were brought out in order to be documented.
