These Phurbas are amongst the finest ritual iron phurbas in the world today! Perfect as a permanent fixture on your shrine. They have been hand 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 attention to detail is unsurpassed. It has taken the maker more than half a year to make ten 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 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.
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.
These phurbas are not available elsewhere and we will only be commissioning 10 pieces in total. 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.
