Vajrayana Buddhist ritual cymbals from a high Himalayan village in Nepal. Great condition, with fine patina, and wonderful sound.

Metal cymbals such as these are an important part of all Vajrayana Buddhist (a.k.a. Tibetan Buddhist) ritual. They are used as an aspect of sound offering during liturgical chanting, as well as to accent other ritual music such as that which accompanies the "cham" or Buddhist masked dances. The photo below was taken during a masked dance. That is a classic Himalayan village scene, with Nyingma lamas presiding over the event, and playing the cymbals.
