Tsa-tsa are images of the Buddha or other Buddhist being, often made from pressed cay, pressed but sometimes from metal or glass. They are often put into gau boxes or placed inside a stupa (chorten) or put directly on an altar or another sacred place. They also had a use as a pilgrimage object collected by pilgrims from shrines they had visited, much like medieval European pilgrim badges - some of which were also pressed fired clay.

In recent times they have become to be highly collected in the west, with old ones of rare design selling for quite high prices.
