Nepal, 17th century

 

Wonderful antique Nepalese Bronze Stupa.
The multi stepped square plinth supports a dome, above which rises the brass pennant-flanked spire.
The Stupa is sealed with an original copperplate, remains of Pujas. The front of the Plinth is decorated with a single Vajra.

Stupas are generally solid, bell-shaped structures that contain a holy relic such as a hair or tooth from Buddha, relics or remains of eminent Buddhist figure, or a sacred Buddhist scripture. They are modelled on ancient Indian burial mounds. Stupas themselves were venerated as symbols of the Buddha.
