Life of Buddha Shakyamuni Tsa Tsa

This Tsa Tsa shows scenes in the life of the historical Buddha Shakyumi. The central depiction in the middle shows him after he has survived the temptation of the devil Mara and attained enlightenment. He sits in an archway that forms the centre of a stylized stupa.

His birth can be seen two images further right, on which his mother Maya is depicted with the typical posture of grabbing a branch of the shala tree.

The event of the first proclamation of the teaching is through the Buddha in Dharmacakramudra we see on the left side a row higher.

In center top Buddha lay down and abandoned his physical body to enter the blissful state of nirvana.

Four other scenes on the right and left side recall the four famous places of pilgrimage Shravasti, Rajagriha, Vaishali and Shangkashya.

The two lions in the pedestal generally inidicate Shakyamuni.

The whole cusped-arch rectangular shape is bordered by a raised rim, creating a protective frame, both of which features seldom seen in the usual Tsa Tsa representations.
