Tibetan Silver Ritual Objects


Most of the items in this collection of Tibetan silver are ritual objects used in religious ceremonies. Performed in a variety of places, Tibetan rituals virtually always demand special implements, which in turn are imbued with magical powers.

Because of their importance, these ritual objects were often fashioned from precious metals, especially silver, and were often decorated with inlaid precious stones. As can be seen from the objects in this collection, they were lavishly decorated with motifs of symbolic importance. Many of these items show off the skill and artistry of the Tibetan metal workers as much as their statuary.
