These piece is from one of my favorite stylistic sub-categories in the Himalayan Shaman phurba genre.  This is the bird phurbas that are such a unique characteristic of the ritual tools of the shaman of the Gurung and related groups in Nepal's mid-west middle hills.  This is a fine specimen, with gorgeous patina and an abundance of that intangible quality called "presence".  The fact is, these are rare and usually I horde them away into my small collection of fine bird phurbas.  I've decided to offer some pieces from personal stash.  So, if you are a collector of fine shaman phurbas... you might want to give serious consideration to this unique opportunity.
