Description
 
These Phurbas are amongst the finest iron ritual phurbas in the world today! They have been hand crafted by a Tibetan family who have been making ritual phurbas for more than 50 years. Iron is notoriously difficult to carve and these pieces have been worked entirely by hand. The attention to detail is unsurpassed. It has taken the maker more than 6 months to create just 10 phurbas for us in this quality, so this should give you an idea of the time and effort involved in each piece. This is the kind of work only commissioned by high Lamas and monasteries. They are large and majestic and have an awesome presence.

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. At the apex of each Phurba is a five prong vajra that sybolises the power of the five Buddha families and their five associated wisdoms.

They are not available anywhere else and we will only be commissioning very small runs of these. They are truly unique works of ritual art. We look at hundreds of iron phurbas every year in Nepal and these phurbas surpass all of them.

Hand crafted in Deradhun, India.
Phurba approx 10.5 inches x 2.6 inches

Phurbas do not come with a stand.
