Hook and snare
9.5 inches (24 cm) high by 4.5 inches (11.4 cm) diameter for the ring
19th to early 20th century

A rare, esoteric device
used by Buddhist Tantric practitioners in Tibet and Nepal as a method of controlling events. These powerful tools can be used for catching good luck and wisdom, or pinning down malevolent energy. In either case, an intriguing and graceful form.
