The Gelugpa tradition of the Tibetan school follows the teachings of the fifteenth century scholar-monk Je Tsongkhapa (1357 - 1419). Simply referred to as the Yellow Hat school, the present lot represents a Gelugpa Lama seated with his legs folded on a cushion and base bearing incised floral motifs. Dressed in a flowing robe with an intricate border, he supports a peaked cap, austere of any design. His right hand is in vitarkamudra, while his left hand rests on his lap.
