Tibetan Incense Holder: Painted Wood
We were told that this open box was originally used to hold incense, though it probably could have been used as a brush box as well. It is painted on all four sides, so it was meant to sit on a table and not hang from the wall as the shape might suggest.

It is painted with the eight Tibetan good luck symbols as well as other auspicious offerings.

It measures 9 x 6 inches and is 16 inches high at the back.
