Antique Tibetan Copper Gau with 2 monk amulets
Please refer to our stock # T182 when inquiring.
This antique copper reposse gau houses a picture instead of a clay tsa tsa which was common for a family gau. when the family could afford to do so, the picture would be replaced by a clay tsatsa. Curiously, this gau also houses 2 amulets, which were typically provided by a monk. The paper is very old and I am told it is bad Karma to unfold the amulet.
The Tibetan Buddhists used the gau as a prayer shrine usually placed on a special shelf in the home along with any other religious relics owned by the family. The gau could and often was worn as adornment by both men and women for festivals.
