Large keepsake locket or gau box from Nepal made of Tibetan silver with the image of Ganesh. In Hinduïsm Ganesh is the god of knowledge and wisdom and is believed to remove obstacles and protects travellers on their journey. The prayer box is inlaid with turquoise and red coral stones. The box can be closed and you can keep something precious in it or for remembrance.
Jewelry from Nepal are not always straight and as fine as our jewelry from Bali. Tibetan silver is a mix of silver and other metals and therefore a bit darker coloured.
The dimensions of the pendant are 5.4 cm x 4 cm x 1.5 cm.
