Copper / Nickel / Gold Gilt Trigug or Kartika Ritual / Ceremonial Axe, Tibet
Detail: Ritual axes like this one symbolize disintegration of all worldly good and transformation into a unified positive force. This is much longer than most Trigugs. This axe is a mixture of copper and nickel with a gold plating. I secured it from a Shanghai Tibetan antique shop. Circa early- to mid-1900s. In very good condition.
