8. Magic Charm Printing Block. 19th Century. 9" square, 1/2" thick. Carved with mantras and magic charms. The center is a deep well so that there is space for a specific magic symbol to be written on the charm after printing. Usually these charms will be pasted to the wall of a house or folded and worn in a gau. This printer has been used many times and is probably too worn to print well but the patina and the piece itself are beautiful and has it a magic feel. $225.
