Created in the image of a classical, hanging byzantine burner, the Iron hanging Censor is a wonderful addition to your sacred space. Standing 6 1/2 inches tall, it features a narrow, 1 1/2 inches diameter base that tapers up to its wide basin, which expands to a wide 3 1/2 inches in diameter and can easily accommodate charcoal and your favorite resin or powder incense. The traditional styled cap rests comfortably atop this basin, and features three clusters of star-shaped cut outs that allow your incense`s fragrance to waft out and air to ventilate in. This ends in a mirrored image of the censor`s base, punctuated by a conical point. The entire piece is made of iron, and coated with gold-toned paint to lend to it that authentic byzantine look. Hang it from your ceiling with the three, 8 1/2 inches chains that allow it to dangle out of the way, filling your ritual space with fragrant, sacred smoke and leaving your altar free for your ritual practice.
