A superfine ritual iron phurba based on a traditional Tibetan design. Crafted for us 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 three sided blade is held in the mouth of the mythical sea dragon known as Chu-Srin in Tibetan or Makara in sanskrit. The three wrathful deity heads at the apex represent the three kayas and inwardly represent the three channels of the body.
The central zone displays a five prong vajra that sybolises the power of the five Buddha families and their five associated wisdoms. These phurbas are not available elsewhere and we will only be commissioning a handful of these pieces. 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 inches x 1.2 inches
