A very fine hand crafted iron phurba amulet and practice support from Tibet. Each piece is individually hand carved and can take a considerable amount of man hours to complete. It is extremely difficult to carve pieces of this size in such fine detail, so these are truly wearable works of sacred art. They are slightly larger in size than the other iron Phurba pendants
in our inventory, which allows finer detail to be added. For example, you will notice that they are crafted from a much darker iron and additional flames have been engraved on the blade. These are not just amulets that can be worn but are equally valid as travel size ritual supports.
The three sided blade is held in the mouth of the mythical sea creature known as a Makara and represents the power to transform the "three poisons" or kleshas into wisdom. The three wrathful deity heads at the apex represent the three kayas and inwardly represent the three channels of the body.
