These are water bowls used in Bhutanese alter to offer water everyday. Water is considered as one of the life source elements and in ancient Tibet it was the easiest one to get and offer without hurting any living beings hence revered as precious offering. When I was little, I used to get up very early in the morning to fill up water bowls. I still carry on this practice in the UK as I have a little alter (I don’t get up as early as I did though).
