    Hi All,

    I have wooden tablet and I am sure that’s Tibetan origin.

    I done some re-search as much as I could, not very easy job to do, when you don’t know what “you are after” [​IMG]

    If someone could advice me on script, what is it and where does it comes from - it would be highly appreciated.

    Translation of text would ideal.


    Kind regards
    Paul

    Are you sure it's a "tablet"? It looks like a woodcut used for printing (=> woodblock printing). In this case, the letters would be mirrored.

    I guess that´s a woodblock for printing a prayer flag. In the middle I can see a Wind Horse, on top left side is a Snow Lion, on top right a Garuda (looks little bit unfamiliar, but corresponding to the other 3 animals it should be a Garuda still). on bottom left side is a tiger, and on bottom right side a dragon. (Normally they are connected to the cardinal directions and on your block the arrangement is mixed up). The other block shows a double Dorje. In very short words: these are symbols with auspicious or obstacle overcoming meanings.
