Antique bronze figure of Tshongkapa, founder of Gelup Order, late 18.sz
This famous Tibetan teacher is usually depicted like a deified lama, holding the stem of lotuses that support his attributes (the hilt of a sword and a manuscript) at shoulder level while doing the „turning the wheel of dharma” gesture.
The founder of the Gelugpa order may be depicted under various forms. The main one is that of a monk seated in the vajra position, wearing a pandita hat, the hat of the Gelupa order.
