Long hangings like this are found through the Himalayas in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and Buddhist parts of India. They are used in the shrine rooms of smaller Buddhist gompas (monasteries). As a result they are often called "gompa thangkas". When a new one is donated to the monastery the old one sometimes finds its was onto the market. We purchased this one in Kathmandu several years ago but the seller could not tell us where the gompa was housed or even in which country. ...click for details

Nagaland wooden rice beater

Nagaland wooden rice beater

Himalayan Antiques



$450 

This rice beater from Nagaland exemplifies the beauty and style the Naga people put into even their most utilitarian objects.

The timeless quality of an object like this defies precise dating. All we have to go on is the patina and workmanship and the knowledge that Nagaland is now inundated with factory produced goods. Let's say that it is pre-1950. ...click for details

Himalayan Antiques



$220 

Because of the subject matter we can assume these two small panels were once part of a thorgam, a Tibetan cabinet used specifically for making offerings to wrathful gods. Each features a skull cup (Tibetan: kapala) being supported by three severed heads, and holding offerings. Inside the cabinet would have been placed more offerings.

They have been varnished before they were cleaned, so they would be a challenge to ...click for details

Himalayan Antiques



$285 

This is an unusual Naga necklace with five cut-out full male figures flanked by a fish pendant on either side. Take a close look at the faces and you will see that each of the brass pieces is unique. The cutting out of the voids is an unusual extra step which had to have been done individually by hand and indicates the care to which the craftsman went. The necklace is strung with traditional orange cylindrical Naga glass beads. ...click for details

Nagaland Headhunter's Necklace with Three Heads

Himalayan Antiques



$550 

In traditional Naga society the wearer of this necklace had to have taken three heads. Since the Naga gave up headhunting by the middle of the 20th century, we are dating this necklace as pre-1950 though it is probably considerably older.

A 21 inch string of black, yellow and green beads attaches to loops on either ends of the brass heads. The three heads together measure 5-3/4 inches in length. Not including the t ...click for details
