I'm off to Kham in Western Sichuan next month. In the meantime I need to brush up on my Tibetan Buddhist iconography. I'm not sure if this distinctly feminine deity is a buddha or a bodhisattva (or something else entirely). I'm sure the caption next to it in the Capital Museum provided that information. Must learn to take notes.
