Item id: 8746

19thC 3 dimensional Nepalese Mandala Box made of all silver--very finely worked, covered with very high quality semi-precious stones. The stones are of exceptional quality--much higher than typically found on the square copper Nepalese plaques (usually 20th century) that are covered with semi-precious stones. These have deep reds, greens and blues, and some of the small ones look to possibly be rubies or other precious gems. Parts (including animals on sides and many of the details on the top) are gilded. There are a very high number of of separately cast pieces added to the top and sides, after the original casting, to and complexity and dimesionality to the Yantra aspect of the piece, and each has specific meaning, and is done with deliberate ritual purpose and significance. The bottom has a Mandala incised into the flat silver surface. Additional detail could be brought out with a careful cleaning, as I believe it has been a long time (if ever) since it has had one. Many people would leave it untouched. With such a complex silver object, this is a personal decision. Very rare, with AMAZING DETAIL. NOT a tourist piece, but made for practice. In amazing condition. The jade ball on the very top is removable for shipping and storage. Finest related object anyone who sees it has ever seen. Museum quality. From an old German collection. This, and the also just posted large 19thC Nepalese Mandala also covered with semi-precious stones are from the same old German collection, and are now in my personal collection. Height: 4 1/3 inches.
