A master quality nine pronged bell and vajra set -- Made by a Tibetan family who have been making authentic bells for more than 50 years. This is without doubt one of the finest sets we have seen in the past 15 years. The vajra and handle are of a quality that we have not seen available anywhere else. They are fire gilded with 24 k gold and intricately carved. Each bell displays a protective vajra fence in between a double row of pearls. Above this are the traditional eight heads of the Kirtimukha, which also symbolise the Makara, a mythical crocodile-like creature from Indian mythology and protectors of the mandala. Each is holding a chain of jewels with vajras in between them. Above the Kirtimukha is a another row of vajras that symbolise the 16 emptinesses. Above this is an eight petalled lotus seat for the eight bodhisattvas and their consorts. They have a vibrant sustained tone of excellent quality!

Origin: Hand crafted in Dehradun, India
Quality: 5 metal bronze alloy with dark antique finish. The handle and Vajra are cast in copper and then hand finished to give finer detail. They are then fire gilded with 24k gold.
The bells are approximately 19 cms high.

The sets come complete with Bhutanese cotton brocade cover.
