What I have been working on this week

I have been making a copper band for a gÇod (Chod) drum, drawing and cutting some copper skulls.

Here is a photograph of one of the ngakru that I have put silver on so that they can be used in practice. This one belongs to Lama  Shé-zér. As you can imagine, this work takes quite a bit of time. Designing and fitting silver to natural material like animal horn requires care and attention.  Lamas Shé-zér and Namgyal were given the horns by Lama Bar-ché Dorje as presents to celebrate their marriage.
