Painted sacred clay figure, representing Lobsang Cheuchi Gyaltsen, a previous Panchen Lama. The figure is seated in padmasana posture, with the left hand holding a bowl resting on his lap above the feet, and his right hand raised in vitarka mudra, with the thumb touching the forefinger. The outer robe is draped over the left shoulder. The hat is round, with a flat top. There is an inscription on the base.
This figure represents Lobsang Cheuchi Gyaltsen, a previous Panchen Lama. In the Tibetan inscription on the figure, the name has been shortened to 'Lobsang Cheugin'. This information is from Dr Akong Tulku Rinpoche. I (Tom Crowley) think that the Persian script also transliterates to 'Lobsang Cheugin'; however, my ability to read nastalique script is limited.
