Copper and brass Gau

Buddhist Amulet Box

This beautiful large Gau has a filigree floral design on the front.

In search of valuable contents, gaus were opened after the Chinese occupation of Tibet after 1950. As with most gaus still in existence today, the filling has been lost as a result, and the gau is empty.

Condition: The gau is nearly undamaged, age has left only a few superficial traces. The outer design of Gaus is usually symmetrical. From this, a second triangular decorative element is probably missing, which should be to the right of the center. It would be the counterpart of the triangular element present on the surface expanding to the left.
