Ghau
West Nepal
19th Century
Copper Alloy
3.75" w x 3" h x 1.25" d

This attractive avian motif is highly unusual subject matter. We have never seen a bird as the theme on a Ghau.  While the Ghau itself and the bird are roughly rendered, the overall feel is of a treasured object. The prayer box is very old and well used, as indicated by the soft edges and rich red patina.
