Ritual Sword, ca. 15th century

Steel with gold and silver inlays; 22 11/16 x 3 1/4 in. (57.7 x 8.3 cm)

     A sea monster's open mouth forms the hilt of this beautifully rendered ritual sword. Scrolling vines inlaid with gold and silver spew from the monster's mouth, surrounding its long curving tongue. Inlaid vines also run down the narrow top of the sword. In Buddhism, swords traditionally represent wisdom's ability to destroy ignorance, which is thought to be one of the negative emotions motivating the bad actions and thoughts that create the suffering of conscious beings. The handle of this sword is in the form of a vajra, a ritual thunderbolt and a motif that symbolizes boundless compassion.


--------------------------------------------------












Ke tri (or patang)

     The Tibetan longsword is called ke tri (pronounced "kay dreh") or ke tri rim po or, alternatively patang (padam). These swords were usually worn, edge up, diagonally on the front of the body, with the hilt located so that the right hand might rest upon it, the scabbard inserted into (and likely tightly tied by) the long wool fabric waist belt worn with traditional costume. Belt attachments are seldom seen on scabbards. A photograph of a Tibetan prince wearing a sword in this manner appeared in the National Geographic in 1925 and was reprinted in Bryan (1987), p.189. The Khampas (tribesmen of Eastern Tibet) will sometimes carry a longsword, a cubit (tip of middle finger to elbow) length short sword, and a utility or "meat knife"     


--------------------------------------------------




   
   
Tsep-sa

    Blade of typical Tibetan shaped but very short, 16 inches long, more of a dagger than a sword, but beautifully laminated and folded in the pattern known a Hairpin Folding. The wood handle is covered with Sting Ray skin and set with numerous red Corals and green Malachite stones. The scabbard is brass and copper combination with the top part decorated in a similar style.

Spear (what is the Tibetan name?)

18th–19th century. Iron, wood, yak hair, and silk; L. overall 74 5/8 in. (189.6 cm); L. of spearhead 20 7/8 in. (53 cm)
Purchase, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Gift, 2001 (2001.179a,b)

 
     This is a very good example of a fighting spear, including textile and yak hair attachments that may have been added to adapt it for festival or ceremonial use. Spiraling strips of iron coil around the length of the spear shaft to reinforce the wood.
  

--------------------------------------------------




Dorje (Vajra, Diamond scepter)

     Dorje in Tibetan means "indestructible". The Dorje is the Tibetan Buddhist equivalent of the double terminated Hindu ritual tool known as the Vajre, or thunderbolt. It represents masculine force, sudden inspiration, the 'cutting' of ignorance and illusion.

Il a effectivement servi dans des rituels, mais il n'est pas à vendre (lien). Par contre, le week-end qui vient, je mettrai quelques liens dans la catégorie Small ads. / 小广告 où on peut trouver des armes blanches tibétaines.
