Add to cart
A beautiful circular shaped incense holder with a mandala design, hand-carved from soapstone by the talented artisans in India.

The mandala is a symbol popular in Hindu and Buddhist iconography, coming from the Sanskrit word for ‘circle’. Tracing over, creating, or simply visualising a mandala is said to aid in meditation, as it helps to focus on the chakras and the process of gaining enlightenment. Many people use incense as part of their prayer and meditation routine and the mandala pattern could help enhance that experience.

The material soapstone is commonly used for sculptures and is created with talc and other minerals such as magnesite. Through the process of heat, pressure and time, this type of stone is created and is called soapstone due to the talc giving it a silky feel.

This holder can be used for either incense sticks or cones and can be wiped clean.

Incense not included

Dimensions: Height 3.5, Width 8cm, Length 8cm
