Maybe Zong Rinpoche, he had such a beard.
One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

thanks for answering, but the hat suggests that this lama is a nyingmapa (or maybe kagyupa)

to me it looks like a yellow hat.

http://buddhism.about.com/od/Schools-of ... elugpa.htm

like this
If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

i have never ever seen a gelugpa with the three stripes-hat of (f.e.) a khenpo. Except H.H. Dalai Lama 14th
maybe it is him with another hat and w/o sun-glasses: :sage:

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
