Karmapa in a Cave Thangka

The 10th Karmapa painted this thangka while he was in exile in Lijiang and Gyalthang (in today's Yunnan China), 1648-1671. It is a self-portrait. On the Karmapa's right is Kunto Zangpo (the Karmapa's faithful attendant for many years) and on the left is the Sixth Gyaltsab Norbu Zangpo. Chenrezig is depicted at the top.
