Tibetan Auspicious Symbol Astamangal Terracotta Round Incense Holder
This clay incense burner has the Tibetan Auspicious Symbol of the Lotus in the middle surrounded by lotus leaves. The lotus flower is regarded in many different cultures, especially in Eastern Religions, as a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration and rebirth. Its characteristics are a perfect analogy for the human condition; even when its roots are in the muddiest waters, the lotus produces the most beautiful flower.
This incense holder has two sized holes, one slightly bigger than the other, in order to hold two different kinds of incense sticks. It holds the incense in the right manner to collect all the ash and remains after the incense has burnt.
Please be aware that items from Nepal are hand made and the Tibetan incense are all varying thicknesses so the largest ones sometimes will not fit in the incense burner hole but the medium to smaller sticks will. In the past if I have had an incense burner where the hole didn’t fit the stick I have used a little bit of blu-tack to hold the stick up.
