This big massive old Tsa Tsa shows eighteen different deities:

  1. Padmasambhava
  2. Amitabha
  3. Avalokiteshvara
  4. Yamataka Vajrabhairava
  5. Padmasambhava
  6. Padmasambhava
  7. Vajrakilaya
  8. Maning Nagpa [Black Heruka]
  9. Supreme Heruka
  10. Vajra Heruka
  11. Kubera
  12. Yeshe Tsogyal
  13. Amitayus
  14. Padmasambhava
  15. Vajradharta
  16. King Trison Detsen
  17. Hayagriva
  18. 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.
