Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Perhaps the most common monument of Tibetan Buddhism.  It was introduced in the 7th Century representing the funeral mounds of its chief symbolic representation of Shakyamuni.  The dome was the shrine of the most sacred of objects.

This stupa is made of a silver / nickel composite is comprised of two parts.  I acquired this many years ago and it has been part of my private collection.
