Tibetan Buddhism Chorten was a monumental stone or mud brick structure. These hemispherical burial mounds entombed the remains of holy men and could also mark the sites of important events in the lives of these figures. The oldest of these structures are preserved in India, where they are called Stupas. This burial tradition was transmitted throughout Asia and was adapted in Tibet in the form of the Chorten, and in China, Korea, and Japan in the form of the pagoda. Over times, these mounds evolved into stylized buildings with symbolic meaning, emerging as a means of incorporating the sacred structure into Buddhist altars. In Tibet, these hollow votive are generally made of metal, though wood and butter are are used by artists to construct many types of ritual objects. The perish ability of this sculpting material conveys a symbolism based on the illusory nature of all things, even those that are considered to be most sacred.
