These ritual items have been used by the Rural Village People of Central or West Nepal during their religious ceremonies and rites inside the village temples or private house shrines. This fine older Incense Lamp consists of hand smithed iron and shows a figural stand with a male sculpture, the face with beard and elongated arms and feet. On top a small bowl with incised floral pattern, used to put and fire ritual incense powder. Superb dark aged patina due to ritual use. A really fine Tribal Item.
