Antique Tibetan Copper Reposse Gau
Please refer to our stock # T180 when inquiring.
This antique copper gau would have been kept in a prayer niche in the home and would be worn as an ornament for festival.
In place of the Tsatsa (clay figure), there is a Tsakli. It was common practice to use a tsakli (small picture card) to represent the religious item which would be placed in the gau, when time and money became available. The original written talisman remains inside the gau also.
Gaus like this were commonly used by the Tibetans living inside China and those living in what is now geographically referred to as the Tibetan Autonomius region of China.
