Copper 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 almost undamaged, age has left only a few superficial traces. At the bottom part of the decoration on the left has been lost..
