Description

This antique kapala originally came form the Chin peoples of Burma, who migrated to Burma in approximately the late ninth century. The earliest evidence of shamanistic bon po rituals in that area also date to that period.   This is an antique kapala that has seen a lot of use as a ritual cup.  The inside shows signs of wear, perhaps from mixing herbs with liquid, and the outside has been polished from being handled.

Pictures of other Bonpo kapalas are available upon request
