Subject:Amber Carving
Posted By: Michael Wed, Oct 18, 2017 IP:

REcently I bought this piece of amber - about 8cm long.
It was labelled: Deity on a tiger.
For me it looks more like Buddha, riding a Lion or fighting with a demon.
Somebody has more information?
Tibet or China?
Thank you

The motif reminds me of hand painted plate I was asking about several years ago, you might look at the description at the bottom of the post regarding the last image which seems very similar to your carving.

See the link below.

URL Title :A similar tiger riding entity.

Thank you for your very helpful answer.
I googled more, and now I am quite sure it is the Mahasiddha Dombi Heruka.
Thank you again
