The exquisitely carved object depicts an amulet or charm-box. The amulet protects its wearer against evils etc. as it contains, inter-alias, the figures of a protective deity.

The arch shaped object is incised with floral designs and the eight auspicious Buddhist symbols; a wheel, a conch, an umbrella, a victorious banner, a vase, a lotus and an infinite-knot. The center of the amulet is open which generally can contain a painting or image of a protective deity.

Amulets or Charms are generally worn by nomads. Although it is worn as an ornament, but it is also a protector of life because it holds protective contents, such as images, relics, blessed pills or grains of rice, miniature paintings etc. Though the tradition of amulet wearing was not in practice in early Buddhism, however with the rise of Tantrism it came into practice, particularly by the northern Buddhists.

This description by Dr. Shailendra Kumar Verma, Ph.D. His doctorate thesis being on the "Emergence and Evolution of the Buddha Image (from its inception to 8th century A.D).

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
