Carved Sea Shells from Tibet also known as Dung-Dkar

About

The Dung-Dkar has been used as an instrument throughout all the recorded history of religious music in Tibet. Before Buddhism was introduced to the region, the Tibetan religion was the shamanistic “Bon”, and in that context the dung-dkar was used to invoke and call the spirits to help grow cattle or food plants and even to banish evil spirits that caused illness and destruction. These two Dung-Dkars are very nice handcarved with ornaments and decors from Tibet.
