I have heard of these things and have probably even seen photos of them but I have no idea how they are used. Regardless, great photo.

Nice! I really like those colors.

These are Buddhist prayer wheels, aren't they?

Just a note:
The top of the wheels are lighter in color than the bottom because that's where thousands maybe millions of hands alight to spin the prayer wheels. Thus they are naturally burnished there by the hands spinning the wheels.
