Amulet box / ga'u



A simple copper arch-shaped ga'u with the kalachakra mantra embossed on the front. Some of the contents are still with the ga'u including three rolls of mantras or prayers ink printed on paper and a small painting of Green Tara or Drolma. She is seated on a lotus pedestal and her right hand reaches down to her side to touch the head of a kneeling devotee. Before her are a snake (on right) and an elephant and snow lion on the left. In the front of them a red demon or imp carries a flame, a leaf lies on the ground, a cup with a thick three link chain handle sits on the floor and in the far left corner there is a walking figure with extended arms in a scissor motion.
