Overview


The influential spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, the Dalai Lama is also Tibet's head of state and its most important political leader. Forced to leave his native land when China invaded Tibet in 1959, Tenzin Gyatso, the present Dalai Lama, moved to India; from there he frequently travels to countries in the West, teaching and lecturing in his quest for world peace. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.
Tom Tierney pays tribute to this renowned teacher in a paper doll collection featuring the revered Buddhist leader and his parents at various periods in their lives. Outfits include formal ankle-length robes of brocaded silk and a fur-trimmed long coat, as well as shirts and prayer shawls of traditonal saffron and maroon. Admirers of the spiritual leader--and anyone intrigued by Tibetan culture--will prize this authentically detailed collection.
