Dimensions: Box is about 31cm (12 inches) long, 5.5cm (2 inches) wide and 5.5cm (2 inches) high.
Made in: India
Information: A hand carved wooden box with brass pentacle inlays in the central part. In the internal compartment there are two holes, one at either end of the base. This means up to two incense sticks can be burned at once. The box also has two inner metal holders to enable the burning of incense cones. Once burning the lid can be closed and the smoke then can drift out through the perforations in the wood. There is a compartment in the underside of the box where it is possible to store up to 20 incense sticks.
Made from high quality wood and these boxes are beautifully finished with a smooth polished feel and fine grain patterns.
We say: The craftsmanship is of a good standard. A great idea to have a storage box and burner in one. And it is attractive to have the smoke seep out with the lid closed.
Dictionary Terms Explained
Pentacle or Pentagram
- Protection, communication with spirit world, magic
The pentagram was considered by the ancient Greeks and medieval astrologers to have supernatural properties and to be a protective symbol. Often in the past people would mark their doors with pentagrams to ward off evil witchcraft and spirits.
In good magic today (with the top pointed upwards) it is often used as a symbol to support transmission and communication with the spirit world. Its five points are often seen to represent the four classic elements of earth, water, air and fire joining with the fifth element of spirit to create life. A five-pointed star (pentagram) with a circle around it is referred to as a pentacle. This circle represents sacred space in which the fifth element of spirit controls the four earthly elements.
Also in the legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight a pentacle adorns his shield representing the five knightly virtues of generosity, courtesy, chastity, brotherly love and piety.

Reviews - rated 5/5 based on customer reviews5 out of 5 By Catherine, PenarthLovely, I love the way the incense smoke drifts out of the lid when closed. My friend loved it to so I will be ordering one for her too.
