Three Stupa Tsa Tsa

Front Side Side View [1] Side View [2] Back

This old Tsa Tsa from fixed-fired clay shows three round Kadampa Tchörten [Skrt. Stupa], the large central in the middle is flanked by two smaller ones.

The three stupas were originally completely encircled by a band of writing. It dates from the time of the Indian Kutila script - a variant of the Ranjana script - which was used between the 8th and 12th centuries. The characters are now only visible on the left side of the Tsa Tsa.

The special feature of this Tsa Tsa is his back, because here is the impression of a circular seal with tibetan letters refers to an old sutra text.

The many hundreds of years have left their mark. Although you can see the basic structure of Tsa Tsa, many of the details have been lost. Compare it with this better preserved Stupa Tsa Tsa stupa. Although it is not identical, it shows the same details.
