This objects depicts a cylindrical shaped incense holder vessel with a top cover, attached by chains. The rounded body of the object is well decorated. The purpose of the object is to contain incense dust or sticks.

The cover of the object is embossed with syllables, Om, Ma, Ni, Pad, Me, Hum, written in Lantsa letters. Both the edges of the cover are decorated with dotted strips. The top of the cover is embossed with a double-vajra. A coral is inlayed on the middle of the vajra. Four turquoise stones have been inlayed on the four sides of the cover. The upper portion of the vessel has been embossed with four auspicious symbols; umbrella, vase, victorious banner, and infinite knot. These symbols have been embossed between the dotted strips and below this again the syllables Om, Ma, Ni, Pad, Me, Hum in Lantsa letters have been embossed. After this adornment, three eight armed standing deities and three stylized dragons have been embossed. Below each deity is vajra inlayed with turquoise.

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
