- Antique Tibetan Tsa Tsas -

Tsa tsas are relief style imprints, made from a mixture of clay and precious jewel-substance in molds of metal, potter's clay or wood. The ashes or remaining bones of deceased masters are added to the clay for extra blessing when the tsa tsas are to be used to fill a stupa. They are baked or allowed to dry in the open air and sometimes, painted with mineral pigments.

Traditionally in Tibet, tsa tsas were placed in caves in the Himalayan mountains or inside stupas.

Motives used on tsa tsas range from Buddha representations, through stupas to complete mandalas.

Tsa Tsas sind reliefartige Abdrücke, die aus einer Mischung von Ton und kostbaren Juwelensubstanzen mit Gussformen aus Metall, Ton oder Holz hergestellt werden. Wenn die Tsa Tsas als Füllmaterial für Stupas fungieren, werden Asche- oder Knochen-Reste verstorbener Meister als besonderer Segen beigemengt, Sie werden gebrannt oder luftgetrocknet und gegebenenfalls mit Steinfarbe bemalt.

Tsa Tsas werden traditionell in Höhlen abgelegt oder auch zur Füllung von Stupas verwendet.

Die Tsa Tsa Motive reichen von Buddha-Darstellungen über Stupas zu ganzen Mandalas.
