Description

Details

This traditional Tibetan chemar bo is an open decorated wooden box divided down the middle, and hand-painted with auspicious Tibetan symbols such as mystical snow lions and wish-fulfilling jewels.

During important celebrations such as Losar (Tibetan New Year), the left side is filled with roasted barley grains and the right side is filled with chemar - a mixture of tsampa (roasted barley flour) and butter. After being adorned with butter sculptures, it is offered on the altar to symbolise abundance and fulfillment of wishes for the year ahead. This practice continues to this day in Tibetan monasteries and homes.

In a modern setting, this chemar bo can be filled with other offerings such as biscuits and sweets, and offered on the altar in the same manner.
