Three Tantric paintings on paper representing various celestial beings in the Tibetan Tantric Buddhism. On the first painting are shown a cross-legged character holding a staff, surrounded by clouds and riding a chimera, and below, a group of four female characters. On the second painting, a male character riding a horse and holding a lotus, and below a female character in formal attire. The third painting represents two female characters, each in formal attire and holding a lotus flower, and below a military officer holding a sword surmounting an elephant carrying the Buddhist Wheel of the Law, and a horse carrying the Flaming Pearl both on their backs. Tibetan characters written on the back of paintings number one and two. Tibet, early 19th century, maybe earlier. Height: 34, 35 and 33 cm. Width: around 9 to 10 cm. All paintings are stained, partly torn, but of great interest.
