Our gold plated Tibetan Buddhist Torma was hand carved by the artisans in Patan, Nepal. This traditional ritual item is gold plated and features an oxidized copper base. Additionally, it can be completely disassembled for cleaning and storage purposes. Our Tibetan Torma is made to traditional specifications and it is of the same high quality craftsmanship that has supplied the Tibetan monasteries for many centuries.
Tormas are made with food and also metals such as copper, silver and gold. The benefit of the metal based tormas is that they are more durable than a perishable food torma. Additionally, they can be used as symbolic weapons for turning back obstacles during new year celebration rituals.
