Tibetan Prayer Cabinet with Original Painting

Torkham from Tibet - Late 18thC with Original painting.
Torkhams were normally set into the wall of a house or monastery - hence the stepped construction.
These cabinets are constructed from cedar or pine and decorated in the traditional Tibetan colours.
Often used as family altars or to store religious scrolls, silk ceremonial clothes, family jewellery and the yak butter used in votive lamps.
Original antique Tibetan cabinets are now very rare and there are many reproduction pieces made in China coming onto the market.
