Photo of Torma Offerings on the 15th night of Monlam Chenmo, Tibet 1921

Rare torma photo taken in Lhasa, 1921 by Rabden Lepcha (?)  from the collection of Sir Charles Bell. From the Tibet Album on the Pitt Rivers Museum Website–they have a fascinating stock of old photos taken in Tibet by Rabden Lepcha, Sir Charles Bell, Hugh Richardson, and others, including some photos of torma and torma-related rituals.
