“Give Peace A Chant” by David McMahon - prayer wheels with 'Om Mani Padme Hum' carved on them. Each twirl of the weighted wheel sends one 'Om' chant to the Universe, earning the twirler merit for their karma to be healed.

Ornaments make up most of the life savings of many Khampa families. Handed down for centuries from generation to generation within families. Until very recently, these families were nomadic thus storing their wealth in portable form, such as art.
traditionally precious metals and stones are the main store of wealth for nomadic tibetan people, because families must frequently move with changing seasons, and an easily transported form of wealth is necessary.
