Phurba and drums

The Phurba (ceremonial daggers and exorcism) for shaman.


They are a kind of wooden dagger whose tip consists of a triangular blade that has most often at the top of the handle 3 faces whose shapes are close to the masks of the mid-hills to which it belongs. Sometimes the three faces are replaced by another pattern: feline, bird, knight, a character with hands folded. They are used by shamans healers as therapeutic tools. The phurba is applied to different parts of the patient's body to absorb the evil spirits.


Shaman drums.


There are two types of shaman drums, one single-sided drum which is the sames as the Siberian ones, the other two sides. The two-sided drum consists of two components: the wooden sounding tight skin and a handle resembling a phurba.
