The following information was taken from the estate inventory listing:


Lot #79:  Vintage Burmese Kalaga Tapestry quilted and embroidered with sequins, glass stones and tiny mirror pieces glued or sewn onto the velvet. The center scene shows Burmese folklore figures. There is a prince in a royal carriage being pulled by a sacred white elephant which is ridden by a royal attendant. Hovering above the carriage and elephant is an angel beseeching the prince to give up the trappings of a royal life and become a Buddhist monk.  According to the lore, the prince did become a monk.
 
The Kalaga measures 30.5” x 30.5” sewn onto a larger black textile backing.  The tapestry is heavy due to the large number of sequins and glass stones, some of which are lost. 
 
Lot #80: Complex hand-painted Thangka consisting of a large Mandela bordered across the top by three male Kalachakra engaged in yab-yum (union of wisdom and compassion) with a woman, seven monks and six women with two other Kalachakra also engaged in yab-yum with a woman, plus one monk at the bottom center. The Kalachakra at the top center and the lower left corner are 3-headed, with the others having one head. The seated Buddha (peaceful male deity) in the central square of the Mandela (circular diagram representing the universe of a deity) is surrounded by 8 winged monks, which in turn are encircled by a 16 praying figures in the next ring and a multitude of figures, birds, heads, etc. in the second to last outer ring. 
 
This especially complex mandala depicts in two-dimensional form the three-dimensional space inhabited by the deity. This bird’s-eye-view centralizes the main deity within concentric squares, circles and borders of his associated lineage and related figures, arranged in order of importance.
 
Note that Kalachakra with his consort Vishvamatha, mother of all beings, in union of great bliss and profound wisdom. The many heads, arms and ritual implements represent the ability to handle all situations at all times.”
 
The painting on canvas is 31.5” high by 20 ¼” wide backed onto a 44” high by 25 ¾” wide red & green silk border with a yellow silk pull over cover. On the back are a red wax seal & inscription “TAO28”, also in red (which may be a gallery catalog # rather than a monastery inscription.   It appears that silk border has been conserved within the last 100 years, while the much older painting has been left untouched, showing evidence of having been rolled up and unrolled for viewing over a long period of time.   
 
See this Christies site for an explanation of how the mandala maps the meditative path for the practitioner, connecting them to the deity and the world he inhabits  > http://www.christies.com/features/Collecting-guide-Teachings-of-the-thangka-7077-1.aspx
