Description
Part of the southern face of the Potala adorned with two appliquéd banners, Koku, (gos sku) for the
Sertreng ceremony (tshogs mchod ser spreng) on the 30th day of the 2nd Tibetan month. The banners have images of the Buddha surrounded by deities and bodhisattvas. The Shol inscription pillar may be seen on the far left of the image. There are trees and grazing anaimals in the foreground.


Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
