These sets of beautiful hand made paper prayer flags each have gold block print designs of the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum.
Prayer flags are used in Nepal to promote compassion, peace, strength and wisdom. Tibetians believe that their mantras will be blown by the wind, through the flags, and spread the goodness everywhere.
Over time the images on the flag may fade but this is seen as a natural progression of life; as our lives move on, so too do that of the flags. Tibetans either ritually burn old flags to furthur spread their prayers or they add new flags to the faded ones as an acknowledgement that they are all part of the cycle of life.
Each individual flag measures 7.5cm × 8cm and the full bunting is approx 1m in length.
