Tibet valuable Handicrafts | Ritual Buddhist Kartika
Buddhist ritual object called Kartika.
In the religious tradition represents the cleaver-shaped weapon, handheld by Mahakala, the Big Black , deity-protector of the Dharma and who corresponds for the Hindus to Shiva, that cuts all material bonds of this world.
A victory symbol, it transforms into positive energy the substance of what has been won and for this, by this, it was used to dismember the corpses during the outdoor burials once common in Tibet.
The grip is always formed by an half Dorje.
This extraordinary Kartika is especially beautiful, handcrafted in silver, vermeil details and covered with natural turquoise tiles, the same turquoise set on top of the Dorje with red corals.
