This is the Chenrezig Shrine Room at Samye Ling Monastery Scotland.
There are lots of very interesting pictures.
All of the items are Oak.
There is One Lama Table in front of The Oak Teaching Throne, two Umzi Puja tables third picture and 18 of the the smaller ones in the third picture.
I still have six more of the small Puja (Prayer) tables to make.
The Tibetan Knot in photo six used 108” of wood, a very auspicious number in the East.

Hi Skarp thanks for the add as.

Yes one thousand armed Avelokitesvara in Sanskrit. I tend to use the Tibetan,.
I watched Lama Thubten sculpture it, his attention to detail is incredible.

The great thing about the path is that no one knows more. :)
If I can be of any help with sizes or the like? Just say.
It is very satisfying making a Shrine.
I also make Yoga Props, most popular being a calf stretcher.

Yours
Jamie
