After visiting Bhutan you will realize the importance of ceremony in the Buddhist beliefs. Throughout their culture are the images of ceremonial decorative daggers.
The dagger or kīla is a three-sided knife, associated with Info-Tibetian Buddhism. The kīla are used in rituals to signify stability during ceremonies. The energy of the kīla is fierce, wrathful, piercing, affixing, transfixing. It binds and pin down negative energies and obscurations.
In my collection, this dagger is simplified into simple images often highlighted by Swarovski Crystals.
