Narrow rectangular print of the mani mantra in a dark wooden frame with a glass front. The print reads, "Om A Hum. Om Bhagi Shri Mum. Om Ma Ni Pad Mey Hum. Om Vajra Pani Hum. Om Ami Deva Hri. Om Vajra Sattva Hum". The rest of the lines are repetitions of, " Om Ma Ni Pad Mey Hum".

These types of wood block prints are ubiquitous in Tibetan cultural areas.
