This is a beautiful Metal Mandala incense burner and holder. The burner has the Om mani paddle hum mantra along each side and along the top of the lid has two deer, symbols of the Buddha´s first sermon in the Deer park at Sarnath and Dharmachakra.
The holder measures 18cm in length and weighs around 220g.
Inside the burner are a row of metal teeth which when bent upwards allow for laying a stick of incense on it. This then allows the incense stick to breath and to burn with maximum effect
