Title

Consecration: The Bai Si, 1987

Description

The Bai Si. This ornament, made of a cylinder divided into three tiers and topped with a cone in which a candle and three sticks of incense are placed, is a symbolic representation of the Buddha, the Dhama, and the Sanghs. There are other versions with more tiers that symbolically brake up the Three Refuges into their components.
