My Tibetan friend recently lost her father in Tibet and I selected this gift to show my compassion for her loss and assist, in her cultural manner, to help her feel peace around her father's death in a tradition she was raised with and I thought being made by the refugees who fled to India was extra appropriate in this case. She absolutely loved it and says it is so lovely.

The bolt which is integral to the curved arm and necessary for assembly was badly bent and had stripped teeth. I had to cut off 1/3 of an inch of the bolt so I could get a straight bolt with enough good teeth to screw it into the base. The item was wrapped in tissue paper, no box so it was inconvenient as a gift. The item otherwise is very nice and attractive, and would make a good gift for someone into meditation.
The product looks cheap and workmanship is below average.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was delighted with this Chime of Compassion. The quality is excellent. The brass chime is ornate and well made and attaches to the wood base with a simple twist. My daughter absolutely loved this gift and was charmed as the receiver!
