Tibetan Antique Horse saddle Rug with Buddhist auspicious symbols along the border. Tigma and flowers in the blue field, the medallions are archaic in symplicity. Very meticulously made T border mid level
I believe the border symbols are- The Five Qualities of Enjoyment used as offerings, as when they come into contact with our senses, they give rise to the negative consequences of attachment and craving:
The Mirror is a symbol for visual form.
The Lute symbolises sound.
The Incense Burner represents smell.
The Fruit refers to for taste.
The Silk relates to touch.
In offering these qualities, one meditates on their nature and the intention of abandoning craving.
