Small Wooden Chest in Traditional Tibetan Design

This small trapezoid Tibetan chest has been hand made and painted at our workshop in Nepal by skilled artisans specializing in woodwork. It is ideal for use as a decorative piece or jewellery box. This chest contains traditional Tibetan motifs featuring a golden dragon, lotus and clouds on the top.

The dragon is considered to be an auspicious mythological creature whose thunderous voice helps spread the dharma, and awaken us. In fact, the word for thunder in Tibetan roughly translates to 'Dragon Voice'. Together with the snow lion, tiger and garuda, the dragon makes the four dignities which represent various aspects of the Bodhisattva nature, like strength, protection and cheerfulness.

The lotus holds great importance in Buddhist philosophy and signifies one's ability to rise above the murk and achieve enlightenment. The lotus is also the pedestal that many Buddhist deities are seated on.

This chest is perfect for adding some colour to home. It can also be used as a spiritual safe to hold your most precious dharma items and precious documents, memories and jewellery.

Size: 26 (length) x 13 (width) x 15 cms (high) measured at the base
