The Kulu Vase is, in fact, a chased copper goblet or water pot, 15cm high of Buddhist design and estimated to date from the first century BCE. It was discovered in the monastery of Gondhola in Lahaul in 1857 when a landslide revealed a monk’s cell said to have been closed for one and a half thousand years. It is considered to be the earliest example of figurative decoration of a metal vessel in India. Currently in the British Museum.
