A 'mani' or prayer wheel, a common ritual object used in Tibetan Buddhism: a device made a handle (here a simple wooden stick) supporting a hollow cylindrical drum on a spindle. A small metal weight, attached to one one side of the drum with a cord, allows the wheel to spin with a slight rotation of the wrist. The drum in his case is of hammered metal, with incised patterns of Buddhist auspicious symbols.

This phallic representation of the god Shiva appears as a columnar head placed on a base with two rounded moldings on top of a series of square ones.  His neck is fully cylindrical and the face is modeled on that cylinder.  The eyes are wide open and a bow shaped eyebrow curves over them.  He has a flared nose and luxuriant moustache over a narrow but full lips and a short ball like chin.  A ‘U’ shaped element consisting of lines and a pearl motif probably represents his beard, perhaps held up in a tight net.  His forehead is decorated with three raise lines that go straight across and his crown is basically flat over his hear decorated with a bunch of peak forms in the center with a finial surmounting the whole.  His ears fan out almost like handles to a jar and are decorated with stylized arabesques.  A five-headed snake hood rises behind the head and has a rib down its center and scale motives incised towards the bottom an ‘S’ shapes t denote the cobra ‘eyes’ to each side.<br />
