Torma trunks housed the yak butter and barley flour used to make tormas. Tormas are a symbolic representation of a delusion or poison that is meant to be cast out. Torma literally means to cast out.
Chosum stands are cabinets used for the display and housing of butter lamps and toma sculpture. These butter offering have ritualistic purposes.
Once a year the high llama would come to the practitioner's house with a Toma stick. This long 4 sided mold was used for making offerings for the family. Tampa dough, made from yak butter and barley flour, was pressed into the molds depending on the families specific request of need.
Each piece tells it's own story with unique iconography and comes with a reference book, "The Golden Valley" by David Huber.
Some of the pieces on sale are cataloged in the book.
