  • A perfect addition to any altar, the conch shell is a popular symbol in Tibetan Buddhism that represents music.
  • Handmade by an artisan in the Kathmandu Valley, conch shells with this level of etching and detail are difficult to come by and sell quickly whenever we are lucky enough to find them.  
  • To be used on an altar, this beautiful shell is hand decorated with intricately carved silver details with inlaid with stones.

The naga/conch shell is one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols and represents the fame of the Buddha's teaching which spreads in all directions like the sound of the conch trumpet.  It is a symbol which fearlessly proclaims the truth of the dharma.

Also featured is carved Eternal Knot design, which represents the connection between one’s spiritual path, the movement of time, and the omnipresent Buddha self.

Measures approximately 6 inches long.  Handmade in Nepal.
