Rare Antique Tantric Himalayan Crystal Kapala.  Nepal / Tibet

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



Master quality tantric kapala.  Bowl is pure Himalayan crystal.  Hand carved metal (silver/nickel composite) surroundings are a wonder of human craftsmanship.  The carvings and many diverse semi-precious stones make this a phenomenal  piece of art.  But, you judge on that statement!


Acquired by my Agent from Kathmandu and a private home.  This piece is AT LEAST from the 1940s.  It comes in 4 parts.


Rare?  Oh my yes.  Try to find this quality for less than $5,000 USD.  If I cannot sell it for the price listed, I will keep it forever!


The religious and aesthetic value is extremely high.   For the Very Serious Collector.


Sorry but this precious kapala has been sold.  Thanks M.S. !
