Fine Tibetan "damaru" (ritual drum), made of silver and leather. The silver part is in the form of two "kapala shaped" parts, separated by a central silver belt, decorated with several turquoise and coral inserts, to which the handle is attached. This silver part is lavishly decorated with an embossed relief design representing foliage and Buddhist symbols. The leather part is painted in green. Two cotton threads, ending in two small balls are also attached to the drum to strike it. The damaru dates back to the 19th century. Height: 7 cm. Length (including the handle): 15 cm. Very good condition.
