Lot 0209
Early 20th century. Copper with raised decoration, round finial, wood handle. The Prayer Wheel consists of a metal cylinder and a handle which also serves as axis around which the cylinder can revolve, being set in motion by a small weight which is attached to it by a string or chain. The cylinder top lifts off and a paper roll on which Buddhist texts are printed can be placed inside. When the prayer wheel is spun in prayer, the mantras inside become potent with the person's intent. Measures 3"x3"x10". PROVENANCE: A Charleston SC Private Estate.
