East Nepal,
29 cm

Nepalese shaman’s ritual dagger, decorated with classical symbols and themes carved in low relief (animals, eagle, interleaving of snakes). There is also the visual theme: a shaman, carrying his drum with a wand. The faces at the top of the phurbu are present in the unusual number of six.
