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
