Bumpa Door Surrounds

3 of 15 donations


Our next major decoration project at the Great Stupa is the Bumpa door frames. These massive frames are to be mounted on the four doors on the Bumpa as per the photo of Gyantse (see below). These four door frames will be a magnificent piece added to the outside decoration of the stupa for all to see.

Sponsors were sought for these door frames back in 2018 and we were honoured to receive 8 sponsors at a total of $25,600. This amount was expected to help in covering our costs as we had a volunteer sculptor from Thailand. However, that sculptor has since left us, and as a result we must now have these frames designed and manufactured in Asia.
The new cost to have these 4 x door frames made in Vietnam and installed is $76,241. This is made up of manufacture, painting and shipping, delivery, crane and scaffold hire, artwork materials, support structure and mounting of four frames.

We are seeking 15 additional sponsors at $3200. Each of these sponsors (the existing sponsors and the new) will be memorialised on a plaque within the stupa.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche has inspected the first painted prototype and has confirmed the artwork is very good and has approved them forthe Great Stupa.
