Secret Visions of the Fifth Dalai Lama: The Gold Manuscript in the Fournier Collection

Some brief overview of book

This beautiful Tibetan manuscript recounts in words and images the visionary experiences of the Great Fifth Dalai Lama (1617-1682). It is the sole illustrated secret autobiography of a Tibetan lama known to exist. The 67 color illustrations contain a total of around 886 individual subjects and consist of diptychs and triptychs.

They represent the finest-known quality in miniature style Tibetan art and stand as the earliest manifestation of the 'black thangka' style of painting.
