Good condition

An detailed and nicely decorated ceremonial Tibetan monkey skull in good condition,
extensively added ornaments in white metal.
The skull can be opened and is layered with white metal / silver (low grade), top lid is decorated with 22 skulls, also around the jaw towards the rear a lot of decorations, even the underside is coated.

These kind of skulls are used in shamanistic and Tantric rituals of both humans and monkeys and goats. The top op the skull can be opened and is been decorated with 2 of the Buddhist Lucky Charms. The right-handed shell (used as a horn); symbolizes the deep sound of the Dharma, the teachings of Buddha, which wakes all sentient beings from their slumber of ignorance and encourages them to pursue their own welfare and that of others. We also see the eternal knot, a symbol of love without beginning and end.
The vase of treasures; represents the richness of the Buddhist teachings but also longevity, wealth, prosperity.


Registered shipping, will be packed very carefully.

  • The candlestick is received in good condition, it was dismantled into parts so that packing inside an EPS foam box provided good protection against impact forces that may cause damages.

    Satisfied with the product. I believe it is a not too old reproduction of the ancient XIXth Century design, but looks great.
