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.

  • Packaging was partly torn upon arrival, too weak cardboard. Some screws missing and some stains invisible in the picture of the item show their face despite the claim of being in perfect condition.

    Erstklassiger Kandelabra,
    leider unprofessionell verpackt, Bananenkarton verwendet, Kandelabra war nicht sicher verpackt, flog im Karton hin und her, im Boden/Deckel nur Packpapier.

    Tengo 7 días para cambiar de opinión a positivo, pero:
    - Embalaje deficiente (una caja con agujeros y el aplique envuelto con bolsas de plástico gordo tipo supermercado, que torció los hierros de la lámpara, agujeros por los cuales seguramente se perdieron las piezas que faltan.
    - se ha torcido la parte inferior del aplique, por suerte hacia arriba...
    - Faltan cristales del aplique.
    -Faltan las dos piezas que enroscan las pantallas de hierro que sostienen la cortina de cristales.
    - La de rosa de metal ha llegado hecha una desgracia...
    Parecía un paquete hecho por un niño.

  • 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.
