All of the items in this gallery are special, most of them are one-off pieces and have stories to tell you. All of them are as they are described or a full refund will be given.

This is a gallery for those who are passionate about Shamanism or Tibetan Buddhism, and who wish to use fine quality sacred objects in their practice.

The ages of the objects in the descriptions are approx, but as accurate as possible. It is often very hard to tell the exact age of an object which comes from a tradition that has used the same sort of object for a long time. Also when the objects are made of materials such as metal, the objects can only be dated by clues given by their degree of wear, and tiny differences in design which change over time. It is possible that the objects are older (or younger) than the guide age.

All the objects are measured in mm. For those of you in the world who dont use this unit of measurement, to conver to inches is easy. There are 25.4 mm in one inch - so divide any mm measurement by 25 with your calculator and you will get a pretty close size in inches. For example 200 (mm) divided by 25 equils 8 (inches).

This website is managed by Nicholas Breeze Wood.

Nick is editor of Sacred Hoop Magazine - a leading international magazine about shamanism, and has had a fascination with shamanic, magical and ritual objects since he was a small child. He has studied them actively for many decades, focusing especially on those used by the Plains peoples of North America, and the Shamanic and Buddhist cultures of the Tibetans, Mongolians and other peoples of Central Asia and Southern Siberia.

He has worked with many shamans and medicine people over the years to learn about these objects, the sacred and craft traditions they were born from, and the use they are put to in ritual and ceremony.
