This listing is for a brass phurba chopper pendant with waxed cord. It measures approximately 1 inch and was handmade in Kathmandu Nepal. The ritual phurba chopper is used in Buddhist ceremonies to "cut off" evil or obstructive forces and spirits. The handle is made of a half-vajra/dorje (thunderbolt) and the bottom of the pendant is a makara (water monster) from which the open fanged mouth (the curving blade) emerges. Many fierce Dharma protectors in the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon hold such weapons as expressions of their power to overcome enemies.
Due to the handmade nature of the item, each pendant may differ slightly. Please let me know if you have any questions.
