Prayer flag from Tibet, loose weave of white and grey wool. Accession File states: "Prayer Flag from Tibet. Placed on the tops of piles of rock, on the great mountain passes of Tibet, to protect the people. What is written on these flags is not really prayers, but quotations from the Tibetan Sacred Books. Repeating the Sacred Books gives merit, which brings favor with the gods and protection from demons. Every time the flag waves once, the person owning it has the merit of reading once all that is written there. Secured by D. C. Graham near Tatsienlu, July, 1930"
