Buddhist prayer flags, a staple Buddhist accessory. The mantra om mani padme hum is written on each flag hundreds of times, and every time they fly in the breeze, all the prayers are offered to heaven on your behalf, and on behalf of all mankind, promoting peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. Hand block printed cotton, from Nepal.
Measurements: a total height of 2 metres, each flag measures 36 x 39 cm
