The latest precious – an 18th century Buddhist Manuscript from Tibet

So here’s the latest precious :)

tz8[1] tz4[1]

there are 24 handwritten pages on 12 sheets, both sides. Each of them is written in Tibetan and on every alternative page, there is a painting of a deity. The paper is heavy parchment very roughly finished, not polished at all. The paint looks like water colours…the ink looks like charcoal

fascinating, I need to get this translated…fascinating parallels with Bengali / Sanskrit script, no?
