With the same hands position and plump upper lip, looks like the photo was the guide for the statue of the Khenpo.
the upper lip is not so plump when you see the statue... it is a mustache -the under lip is a little plumper.
but i think you're right anyway.
but mostly the chinese manufacturers (i think it is chinese)copy statues, or make it from old thangkas, or photographs of it...
i never saw any statues of a recent lama, or even a living one....thanks to all for answering
