This beautiful brocade Buddhist hat is used for monks and Buddhists alike in ceremonies. Such crowns were worn by monks conducting rituals and were often part of dance costumes used in public ceremonial performances.

The term "Nyingma" in Tibetan signifies "ancient" and traces its origins to the 8th century, a period when Tibetans predominantly followed the indigenous Bon religion. The Nyingma sect, alternatively known as the Red Hat sect, earned its name due to the distinctive red robes and hats worn by its Lamas.
