Elephant Wall Mask
This elephant mask or Ganesh mask was handmade in Nepal. It is made from wood, with turquoise, coral, and lapis lazuli inlay around the outside of the mask. This mask is 13 x 7 x 4 inches. Ganesh is a significant deity in Hinduism, and he is popular in Buddhism as well. Ganesh is the son of Shiva and Parvati and it is said that Ganesh's head was replaced with an elephant head when he came between Shiva and Parvati in a fight and so Shiva swiped off his head and replaced it with that of an elephant. Ganesh is the Lord of Success. Elephants in general have a great history in Tibetan Buddhism, the elephant is strong and so it is a symbol of physical strength and also mental strength. The idea in Buddhism is that one can practice the dharma and calm the mind, in order to access the wisdom in each of us.

Dream of Karmapa Flag and Om Mani Padme Hum Wood Board


Dream of Karmapa Flag

The 16th Karmapa saw this flag in a dream and proclaimed that "Wherever this banner is flown, the Dharma will expand." The 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje lived from 1924-1981, and his proclamation did come true, because he is credited with bringing Buddhism to the West. In the Gelugpa tradition, the Dalai Lama is the leader. The Karmapa is revered in the Kagyu tradition. 

We also have some new wood carvings in stock in two different color combinations. Both styles have the om mani padme hum mantra across the front of the wood carving.
