Nantain and guards

Nantain and guards, originally uploaded by jiulong.

This is a comedy about a bigheaded (literally) Chinese monk, Nantain, who comes to Tibet to show off his Buddhist knowledge. According t Rock this was a piece of politico-religous propaganda directed against the Chinese: "to emphasise the superiority of the lamas over the Chinese, whom they hate most cordially".
