Large keepsake locket from Nepal made of Tibetan silver with the image of Ganesha. In Hinduïsm Ganesha 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 genuine 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 pendant is 5.4 cm x 4 cm x 1.5 cm.
