This is a wonderful Tibetan Ghau, a prayer box or charm box from Tibet. These Gua boxes are a mainstay of Tibetan culture, and they are also worn by Buddhist peoples living in other central Asian Countries. These portable shrines were made to contain a small image of the owners personal deity when traveling. They can also contain written prayers, miniature paintings, relics or special amulets, medicinal herbs that are designed to protect the individual from evil spirits when traveling. The shrine which holds the image of a Deity or Buddhist is made of copper or brass decorated with beautiful repousse' work and placed in a woven bag that can be worn over the shoulder. In a Tibetan home a Gua is kept on an altar. This is a unique gift to give to someone, use it in your home or travel with it.
