Painted Altar Cabinet From Tibet - 19thC

This wonderfully unusual Altar cabinet is decorated with the Tree of Life on a dark background which is very unusual. The painting is original - Circa 19thC

These cabinets are constructed from cedar or pine and decorated in the traditional Tibetan colours.
They were often used as family altars or to store religious scrolls, silk ceremonial clothes, family jewellery and yak butter which is used for the votive lamps.
 Original antique Tibetan cabinets are now very rare and there are many reproduction pieces made in China coming onto the market.
