An impressive large size gau with viewing window. The front displays the Mani mantra in Tibetan script. The front is probably crafted from copper that has oxidised a lovely silvery dark colour. It also comes with a strap and leather frame that allows the gau to be worn on the body (this is a later addition to the gau).
