There is only one man in Nepal that makes these amazing bell and dorjes with hand carved wooden cases. We only received 2 of these this year! Set includes a 7 metal bell with a clear tone and exquisite carving, and a 4 pronged dorje with amazing detail. The hand carved and painted wood case is simply stunning.
The hollow of the bell symbolizes the wisdom cognizing emptiness. The clapper represents the sound of emptiness. The eight lotus petals on the bell are the four mothers and four goddesses, and the vase represents the vase containing the nectar of accomplishment. Paired with the dorje, the bell represents wisdom. As wisdom and method are an undivided unity, so the dorje and bell are never parted or employed separately.
Wooden case measures approximately 8 1/2" tall, 4 1/2" wide, and 5" deep. Bell measures about 7" tall and 3 1/2" wide. Dorje is 4 1/2" long.
