Temple prayer wheel with the Seven Limbed Puja painted in gold on the frame, while the barrel has two secret Kalachakra mantras(see

The next banding layer has a lotus, a conch horn, a Cintamani on the Queen's earrings and Cintamani in the mustard seed bowl, alternating between sets of gold double Dorje (sanskrit, vajra) outlined in kyungbur. The top has two silk ribbons, along with both the King's and Queen's earrings. Made of Asian Juniper. The swivel- mounts are metal. Comes with Certificate of Authenticity brush-signed by a monk at the Sange Tibetan Buddhist Monastery.
