Item:2332518781861700’s ANTIQUE MONGOLIAN TIBETAN BUDDHIST CLAY STUPA TOP HIDDEN FROM THE COMMIES. So part of Grandfathers Collection this is a piece he bought from some Mongolian Herders who had found several of these stupa tops hidden in a niche in a cave along with some badly deteriorated Buddhist prayer manuscripts. Apparently the local monks who had survived the massacres by hiding in the caves and by being hidden by the locals had taken and hidden whatever they could find before and after the destruction of their monasteries in the network of local Caves. Many of those monks never made it back to retrieve their items. This is the very top of one of the holy stupas, one of several that would have stood at the monastery before its total destruction. This is a testament to the strength of mankind against the pure hatred of evil, against all odds they were able to try and save what they could from the destruction laid down to the cultural history of the whole region under the heavy hand of communism. Shipped with USPS First Class Package (2 to 3 business days). Roughly 3.5x3.5 inchesPrimary Material:CLAY, Age:19TH CENTURY, Type:Stupa Top Fragment, Region of Origin:Mongolia
