Ideal Tibetan Government (Lotus Field)

by Unknown

Abstract

Ink and colored pencil on paper, 23-3/4 (L) x 18 (W) inches. This image depicts the ideal Tibetan government symbolized by 10 buildings. The large palace with the yellow tiled roof in the top center represents the Dalai Lama flanked by the cabinet (kashag) and legislature. Below are buildings for the judiciary, departments of religion, education, agriculture, medicine and human welfare and transporation. At the very bottom is a structure representing regional governors and departmental offices. The sketch is signed "Ross." These sketches of ideal government were apparently based on lectures the Tibetans were getting from CIA instructors on the tasks of nation-building.
