Exclusively on Manfredi Style from private collection located in Florence, Italy
An excellent specimen of Buddhist rites represents benevolent deities and was used by the monks in order to cast out demons and distract evil spirits.
The finesse of execution is notable, probably entirely made by one single craftsman capable, by means of a careful stylistic study, of highlighting the divine spirit and the sacredness of the object.
Similar examples were used in Buddhist rituals during the Cham dance of the Tibetan monks for over 1,200 years whose purpose was to bless the whole community. The presence of the red color strengthens the power of the dancing monk performing the most important ritual. Tibet, early twentieth century.
