Tibetan woodblock (505 x 315 x 30 mm.), carved on one side.

Tibet: probably early 20th century.

A large and heavy Tibetan woodblock. The main figure is the four-armed, three-faced form of Amoghapasa Avalokiteshvara, the savior of beings. At top center is a Buddha that is likely Amitabha, though possibly Shakyamuni. The two teachers in the top corners exhibit combinations of attributes that could signify any number of individuals. The Tibetan script below, minutely carved, does not have any immediate indications of lineage or who the people were.

In fine condition.
