Tibetan Ghau (travel altar) from Nepal

Tibetan Ghau (travel altar) from Nepal

Dimensions: 9 x 7 cm.

The Tibetan Ghau was used to carry sacred relics, amulets and medicinal herbs, and acted as protection during travel. The ghau can be worn hanging from the neck or on a hip band or belt.

The small statue inside depicts a deity in Namaskra mudra, with palms pressed together in celebration. This deity symbolizes the union of the spiritual and material realms.

The ghau are made by a small group of Tibetan refugee artisans currently living in Nepal.
