Very old Bodhisattva Manjushri Tsa Tsa

Front Side Side View 1 Side View 2 Palm print on back

This very old tsa tsa shows the Bodhisattva of Wisdom Manjushri

He sits on a simple lotus throne. On his right and left side two small stupas can be seen.

In his right hand he holds his sword of knowledge, with which he cuts through the roots of ignorance. On his left, a square Tibetan book [a manuscript of the Prajnaparamitra Sutra] rests on a lotus flower.

The heavily weathered, illegible inscription suggests a script similar to the Indian Kutila script used from the 8th - 12th centuries. This would fit the estimate of an expert who placed this Tsa Tsa chronologically in the Yuan Dynasty 1279 - 1368. As with almost all temporal estimates of Tsa Tsas, however, this is not certain and can therefore not be guaranteed.

Origin and Age: Tibet 12th / 13th century - [uncertain determination]
