In November 1950, still only aged 15, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as Tibet's temporal leader in a ceremony in Lhasa and spent most of the next decade trying to avoid a full-scale military takeover of Tibet by Chinese forces.
An interesting design because the two figural tigers are facing away from each other. Probably the original design was meant for a saddle rug. Two cinnamon tigers in a bamboo grove, traditional Tibetan border of mountains-and-skulls. This carpet is typically made to be 3' x 6' , but any rug may be had in almost any size.
