Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



A traditionally styled Phurba.  This is a ritual object used to dispel and destroy obstacles.  Originally used to mark out the perimeter of the construction of temples and monastery, it is still used in religious and sacred ceremonies.


I have an accompanying older “stunning” case for this size of  Phurba.  Check out O-1526.


This item has sold.  Thanks M.S. !
