This beautiful Tibetan copper pot is used to dispense blessing water. Such a pot, called "Bhuma", is always placed on the altar filled with saffron water, with a peacock feather. A head monk pours drops of water out from the pot into a worshiper's hand or head. Such a ritual is a process of giving and receiving blessing. The pot is decorated with Tibetan auspicious symbols, with its top fully adorned with embossed lucky signs in a lotus pattern. The elaboration extends to the spout. Handmade. Highly collectible.
