Massive Rare Desktop Prayer Wheel. Tibet.
Old, original and culturally accurate. Inscribed with the Sanskrit OM MANI PADME HUM mantra, roughly Jewel in the Lotus Flower.
Older prayer wheels like this are almost impossible to find in this condition. Mostly carved from wood, the cylinder is hand stamped in metal . . . and, of course, contains prayers on a silk fabric.
The hand carved Tibetan Snow Lion can be moved to either side of the top rail.
Again, this prayer wheel is in very good condition. The wooden supports have been stabilized with screws but this does not affect its value or religious significance.
This rare prayer wheel has been SOLD. Thanks. M.S. !
