Decorative Mallet Collection

Bodhisattva is proud to offer this exclusive collection of Master-quality mallets designed, commissioned and produced in Nepal in the mid-90’s. Each of their cast bronze heads are completely unique, hand-finished works of art mounted on a  Himalayan hardwood mallet that is ideal for rimming larger singing bowls.These heads were cast and finished by a Newari artisan descended from a storied lineage of statue-makers in Patan. With the ever escalating economic pressures bearing on the marketplace in Nepal, nothing of this quality would be possible to reproduce today. As each statue is one-of-a-kind, dimensions, weights and features vary slightly.
