A Tsebum is ornately displayed on a red stand of Durva grass on the front, while Mt. Meru in a Snow Lion simularca is on the top. Nicely painted on the front, top and both sides this box would have been used to transport a Lama's ritual items when he went calling on his constituents. Inside there would be ritual items, like the Toma stick used for making offerings, barley flour, ankushas or other instruments as needed for the occasion. The front clasp and side handles are brass. The corners are copper clad and this is a later mid 20th century addition. The brass hinges on the back are 21st century replacements. The s have a single lotus bud with mare's tail clouds racing across the sky. Please see the iconography for further details. A Certificate Of Authenticity, brush-signed by a monk at the sange Monastery will be provided along with a map and historical information.
