During the brief reign of the Sixth Dalai Lama, who built Tibet's Potala Palace in the 18th century, unknown artists created a series of mysterious paintings on the walls of the temple's private chapel. Comparable in quality to the Sistine Chapel in Rome, these masterpieces of Tibetan art are reproduced for the first time in this extraordinary publication. 200 illustrations, 151 in color.
