Story Behind the Art:
dZi Inc. has been working with artisans in the Tibetan exile community in India since 1990, and with Nepali artisans involved in traditional Tibetan style crafts since 1995. Their products are marketed as part of dZi's Tibet Collection line.Authentic cloth prayer flags printed on hand-carved woodblocks are specially made for dZi by The Gu-Chu-Sum (9-10-3) Movement of Tibet, established in 1991 and based in Dharamsala, India. Gu-Chu-Sum was first organized by ex-political prisoners from the Tibetan freedom movement; monks, nuns and lay people who had escaped from Tibet due to political persecution. Its purpose is to provide employment and support to Tibetan refugees needing help in India, and to educate about human rights abuses in Tibet. dZi's screen printed prayer flags are made by the Tibetan Nuns Projection (TNP), also based in Dharamsala, India. TNP's mission is to provide a safe and supportive environment and education for Tibetan nuns who have fled Tibet for reasons of religious and political persecution. dZi's paper prayer flags and incense are made by Tibetan Handicraft in Kathmandu Nepal, a member of Fair Trade Group Nepal and leader among the handmade paper export community. This business supports hundreds of people in the local community through it's income generation enterprise, and runs an elementary school providing free and low cost education for local children.Sales of the all the above-mentioned products help to support the mission of these organizations and businesses.

    I bought incense reeds and thought this would be a beautiful way to burn them - I have to pull off the bottom of the sticks and sort of 'cram' them into the hold and try to adjust them so the ashes don't fall all over the cabinet. I've either not figured out how to use this with the pretty generic sized incense sticks or I'm using the wrong kind of incense. It's a bit messy and although I'd hoped to use it on it's own so it's beauty was hidden, but I had to buy a decorative plate the put under it so the asshes would fall into the dish. Not that pleased with the outcome, but I've resolved it without having to return the holder. maybe someone can suggest another brand of incense to use in a ceramic such as this?
