13. Amitayus14. Padmasambhava
15. Vajradharta16. King Trisong Detsen
17. Hayagriva18. Vajravarahi

The whole cusped-arch rectangular shape is bordered by a raised rim, creating a protective frame. Nevertheless, time has also left its marks on this votive tablet.The surface is slightly rubbed off yet all 18 deitiescould be identified. Padmasambhava is depicted four times on this Tsa Tsa.

The Tsa Tsa has originally a golden surface. This shows the esteem in which the Tsa Tsa was held. Tsa Tsas produced in large numbers did not receive gold priming. Some traces of the gold poder still remains

The age is difficult to determine, it probably dates back to the late 19th century.
