This room is really dark. Rie used her flash to take the photo. This piece I am looking at is unique. You see the silk on the canopy is old, maybe 100 or so years, the string hanging down is tied to a Tokchas. Originally were made from meteor, Tibetans would find meteor rocks, melt them and the metal would be used for tokchas. The tokchas are worn by Tibetans, today there are old ones and there are new ones of brass made to look old. I have a few really nices ones in the art collection.
