Jewelry from Nepal: Individual Pieces

Ganesh is one of the most popular gods in Nepal.

This small amulet can be worn on a cord. Embedded in the crevices are traces of tika powder. It measures 1-1/2 inches by 1-7/8 inches high.

Like most Nepalese amulets of this sort the back is soldered on only three sides, leaving a tiny slit on the fourth side for sliding in a talisman of some sort. Something of some substance is inside this one, but we haven't done any investigating.
