Mandala canopy

Post by tingdzin »

Does anyone have a good plan for constructing, or know of a place for purchasing, a good-sized (20" or 50 cm. on a side) shrine canopy of the sort used in covering mandalas and accoutrements during a major ceremony or empowerment? Even a picture that I could use as a model would be helpful.

Did you check potalagate? If they don't have one listed, maybe try emailing and see if they can acquire for you.

Something like that, but a good deal smaller obviously.

I'll check out Potalagate, thanks.
