The prayer wheel that you see on this page is an auspicious work of art. It is made from a mix of copper, an elite medium in the Nepalese sculptural tradition, and brass, which is further overlain with cobalt blue and scarlet inlay. It is a finely fashioned number with a stoopa-like zenith and an interlocked vajra stand. Zoom in on each aspect of this prayer wheel to appreciate the precision and symmetry with which each detail has been introduced into the work.
The body of the prayer wheel is resolved into two panels. The upper one is embossed with ashtamangala motifs, the lower one with the moolamantra punctuated by ashtamangala motifs. The smaller panels that separate the two and hem the same along the outer edges are defined by high-precision filigree that adds to the ethos of the composition.
