Jewelry from Nepal: Individual Pieces

Another small amulet. This one shows three figures, but we are not sure of the iconography here. Perhaps it is intended to represent the Hindu trinity.

This amulet measures 1-7/8 by 2" in height. Like the preceding jantar, this amulet was left unsealed on one side of the back. It contains a talisman as well. This one can be barely seen. It is of painted paper or cloth.
