An elaborately crafted Tibetan 'gau' box, worn suspended around the neck in which prayers on paper or small images of the Buddha are kept, while circumambulating holy spots. It comes with a silk textile which has been fashioned to hold and protect it. The sides of the box are made of copper. SIZE - 4" wide x 5" height x 1.5" depth
The condition is good, with no dents. The silk container is a bit weathered as one would expect given its years of use. SIZE - 4" wide x 5" height x 1.5" depth
