Handcarved Incense Censer, Woven Bag and Premium Grade Aloeswood
These meticulously hand-carved wood censers make for a beautiful accent to your cha xi, lined in the bottom with a special type of black "felt" that allows you to lay aloeswood horizontally while burning inside the box. The smoke slowly drifts through the holes of the censer, creating a beautiful effect. The censer comes wrapped in a stunning hand-woven padded bag with a separate case that contains 23 sticks of premium grade sweet aloeswood. In Taoist lore, the incense-burner remained the centre of changes and transformations associated with worship, sacrifice, ascending perfume of sweet savour, fire, combustion, disintegration, transformation, vision, communication with spiritual beings, and assurances of immortality. Wai tan (outer alchemy) and nei tan (inner alchemy) met around the incense-burner.
