This elegant gold offering cup hints at the beauty and mystery of the Tibetan culture. With a delicate shape reminiscent of the lotus blossom, the cup appears to open up, much like the spirited lotus as it matures. Intricately incised patterns on the surface of the cup further enhance its mystical beauty, the motifs perhaps suggestive of a divine and ordered universe. A radiant light reflects off the cup's detailed surface, illuminating our spirits with the creative force of the universe. Offering cups like these are usually arranged as a set of seven, each filled with clear water as an offering to the Buddhist deities on the altar cupboard. - (FJ.5230)
