An original old Gau, used by Tibetan Buddhist's when travelling, you will always have your Manjushree with you.
Basically a portable shrine that Tibetans would take on long journeys.
The outer is made from leather with a cord at the back to hang on your wall.
Buddha is carved, this is a very interesting item for a collector or enthusiast.
It is old but not sure how old. Definitely not a tourist trade item.
Measures: 15 x 12.5 cms (6 x 5 inches)
